Jla vie. GolLeadesuie, 33rd Year — No. 7 Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penna. Friday, January 11, 1957 Mary G reen Hall Nears Completion Moving And Renovations Planned January 24, 25, 26 $590,000 Goal Reached In Development Program Campaign Lebanon Valley College development program workers noted with enthusiasm today the attainment of their $590,000 minimum development fund goal. Dr. E. N. Funkhouser, of Hagerstown, Maryland, president of the college board of trustees and chairman of the executive committee for the development program, announced that the goal was surpassed with gifts and pledges received by De- cember 31. He forecast that additional monies will undoubtedly be added to the $590,00, since area campaigns are still underway in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the Middle West. Lebanon Valley officials were encour- aged by the completion of this first phase of the college's ten year development program, begun in June, 1955. Its original goal was $400,000, but the challenge of Lebanon Valley's $159,000 Ford Foundation grant plus early success in its campaign led the trustees to raise the figure. The college also expects to receive an- other $500,000 pledged by the United Crusade, a movement sponsored by the Evangelical United Brethren Church to aid its colleges, seminaries and church extension plans. The amount already received or pledg- ed will be used to finance the college's new science hall and library, to help pay for a new women's residence hall and to increase endowment funds of the college. Cont. on Page 4, Col. 3 Sophomore Class Elects Sam Poet The class of 1959 elected Sam Poet its rew president for the second semester of the 1956-57 school year. Outgoing Presi- dent, Sandy Stover, who will be a first semester junior next semester, reported the results of the election held Tuesday and Wednesday, January 8 and 9. Sam, a music education major in the conservatory, is a member of the college band, the Glee Club tour orchestra, and the symphony orchestra. He is also among the ranks of the Legionnaires, our veteran's club. Sam's career of music began during his high school years at William Penn High School in Harrisburg. While a student there, he participated in the Music For- ensic League Contests, entering the state competition in 1950 at Pittsburgh and ty- ing for first place on trumpet. While serving in the Navy from 1951- 55, he attended the Navy School of Mu- sic for a year. This school was originat- ed by Dr. James Thurmond, assistant professor of music education in the Con- servatory. With the Navy he went on a world good will cruise having travelled the whole way around the globe. The sophomore class extends a hearty welcome to its new president, Sam Poet, and a grateful note of thanks and congra- tulations to its outgoing president, Sandy Stover. REMINDER! All information for the weekly col- lege calendar should be in by noon Friday preceding the week in which the event will occur. Tentative plans have been made for the campus "moving day." According to the schedule, women will move into Mary Green Residence Hall Thursday, January 24. The women will have to move at this time so that Keister Hall can be ren- ovated. The renovations are planned so that the men can move into Keister Hall within the next few days. Mary Capp Green Residence Hall This beautiful three-story residence hall will house 92 women, and will have many added facilities, which before this time have not been available. In the basement there will be a storage room for luggage; a laundry room; a canteen equipped with a stove, a refrigerator, and a stainless steel sink; and two recreation rooms. One of these recreation rooms will be used by both men and women. The women's recreation room will be equipped with a color television set. Rooms for the women's societies will also be located in the basement. Delphian will have its own society room, and Clio will share a room with Jiggerboard. There will be a lounge located on each floor, with the main lounge for guests located on the first floor. The women's rooms have been decorated in a blend- ing scheme of pink and green. Traverse- rod draperies will be provided for the rooms. Mrs. Margaret Sullivan, now head resi- dent of Sheridan Hall, will be the head resident of Green Hall. Sheridan Hall will continue to be used Cont. on Page 4, Col. 1 MARY CAPP GREEN RESIDENCE HALL PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 11, 1957 Z)he Skovenidtic (Bull,.* Freshmen are cringing along the walks and stumbling in awe before the spectre of English 10; some have already felt the rnguish of an unprecedented Orientation final and view the coming week-end with further horror. Sophomores having had their feet wet once and twice are cockily looking for- ward to a better round of results now that they are aware of what's ahead. Juniors are bending heavily under the burden of required courses and major electives, but as old veterans toss off thoughts of the coming ten terrible days as so much pish-posh — huh finals! But deep down they have the memory of be- ing faked out again and again by wary profs who spend as much time looking for tough questions as the juniors do for the answers. The seniors have had it. They have gone thiough all that their understudies are now experiencing plus the added awareness that you can never win. The seniors through canksred voices and jaun- diced eyes drag themselves forward for one more round of finals. But these are generalities — specifically the students are as busily diversified as are the termites undermining the men's dorm. It seems that each student has his own method of attacking these mid-year nightmares! There is the "pupil" who will spend three days and nights making crib sheets rather than spend one evening studying the notes he copied from the fellow down the hall. There is the guy who knows he knows everything already and he can't possibly be faked-out THIS TIME. There is the group who spends every night before the final in a bull session from six to six and then to a man fall asleep after breakfast and miss the final anyway. There is the poor unfortunate who started s+udying for his 40-2 two months ago because his average is about that (40-2) and knows so much now that he can't keep it straight. There is the crew who worries so much that the" can't sit down to study because they know he won't ask that. And the crew who gives up because there is just too much he will ask. There is the student who has five tests the first two and a half days and figures it's no use anyway. He rooms beside the guy who has them spread out the length of the two weeks and can t seem to get in the feeling of things. There is the guy last year who was re- ally going to hit them this year and may still next year if he passes summer school this year again. Then there is the other guy who is the composite of all those, but who looks at you and says — "What, me worry!" Are We Being Responsible? It is quite alarming to see how the student loan fund which is located in the Student Personnel Office has become exhausted. Within the past month there have been few funds available for student loans. Why? Because little money has been returned and consequently there is only a small turnover for more loans. The fund was originally set up with the amount of $50.00. Since the fund has been initiated there has been a total of $83.00 borrowed and $33.00 returned. Dur- ing September and October $23.00 was borrowed, which has not yet been return- ed, and in the month of November a total of $25.00 was borrowed and likewise has not yet been returned. This means that since the latter part of November there has been only $2.00 available for the student loans. In most cases the money which has been returned has been replaced on the loan board within a week or ten days. These statistics could be due to either one of two causes: either the fact that they have borrowed money has slipped the minds of some of the students, or several of the individuals who have borrowed money have convenient memories and have no intention of returning the money. If the first of these two causes is true, may this editorial serve as a reminder to those who have forgotten. However, if the second cause be the case, it is hoped that these few lines may stimulate the minds of those involved and that as a result some of the long-standing loans may be returned. It is to be remembered that the success of such a student loan fund is dependent upon the turnover of the loans. That is, if six students take out $5.00 per person in September and return it in May, very few people are being benefited by such a fund. But if students borrow sparingly, realizing the size of the fund and the importance of returning the loan as soon as possible, more students may be able to borrow sev- eral dollars "in a pinch"; as it stands now, unless there is a faster turnover, there are rarely funds available for such an occasion. It must also be taken into consideration that the honor shown by students in this loan fund experiment will have a great bearing on future projects of a similar nature. The day of stronger and more creative student government, the honor system in testing, and other privileges will come about only as fast as we as students show ourselves responsible for such systems. Have we proven ourselves responsible for the student loan fund?

Riley La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 11, 1957 PAGE THREE Notes From the Chaplain's Desk During this Universal Week of Prayer Observance in Annville, the campus community joined with the local churches in evening services. Group attendances were noted on Wednesday and Thursday evenings by the Student Christian Associa- tion and Delta Tau Chi, respectively. In the weekly chapel hour, January 8, the subject of Prayer was emphasized by Dr. Ezra H. Ranck, Harrisburg. Mr. Robert S. Clippinger, '39, Organist and Choirmaster of the Grace Metho- dist Church, Harrisburg, and the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg, was the guest organist in the Annville Church of the Brethren, Sunday afternoon, Janu- ary 6, when a new organ was dedicated. Early in January a few former SCA leaders of past years found their way to the campus for short visits with students and professors. Among these were Mary Lou Young '55, who is doing graduate work in Syracuse University; Cyrus Dietrich '56, in the U. S. Army; Irene Urian '56, in the Graduate School at the University of Wis- consin; and Rachel Myers, Nurses Training School, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Balti- more. Each of these was actively engaged in the promotion of Student Christian Association activities during undergraduate years. During the first semester Delta Tau Chi has sponsored "Morning Prayers" five days a week in the Carnegie Library. Students have volunteered the leadership from week to week under the direction of Merritt Copenbaver. The ten minutes from 7:45 to 7:55 are put to good use at the beginning of the day. The Student Christian Association is making provision for the annual observ- ance of the Day of Prayer for Students, Sunday, February 17. Jack Stearns, Vice- President for Men, is making plans which will be announced later. The Personal-Campus Affairs Commission, under the leadership of Louise Gay, presented the subject of "Dating" in SCA Fellowship Hour, January 2, through the technique of the Socio-drama. Mr. Keller of the English Department staff was in attendance and gave helpful direction in each of the scenes. John Ollinger, a member of the First Baptist Church of Ford City, had been tendered an invitation to attend the Conference on Church Ministries at the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. Bishop D. T. Gregory '17, and his wife were victims of a fatal highway acci- dent, December 27, on Route 40 near Cambridge, Ohio, while traveling from Dayton to Pittsburgh. The Bishop was a Trustee-at-large of Lebanon Valley College. Since January 1, 1951, he was the resident bishop of the East Central Area of The Evan- gelical United Brethren Church. Virginia Smedley '58 recently accepted an invitation to attend the fifth confer- ence on Religious Vocations for College Women which will be held at Union Theo- logical Seminary, New York City, February 8-10. Virginia is a member of the First Presbyterian Church, West Chester. On the campus she is Vice-President for Women in the SCA and also student chairman for the 1957 Relig.ious Emphasis Week. This I Believe As torrents in summer, half dried in their channels Suddenly rise, though the sky is still cloudless For rain, for rain has been falling far at their fountains; So hearts that are fainting, grow full to o'er flowing, And those that behold it marvel and know not That God at their fountains far off, far off has been raining. — Longfellow How well the poet captures the spirit of simple faith and trust in a God who abundantly blesses and cares for those who are faithful to Him. The blessings and promises of God are beyond the comprehension of worldly men because they have failed to acknowledge and accept Christ as the only hope of salvation in, a world which would have men believe that satisfaction of the soul is found in the realm and sphere of the knowledge of the world — a manifestation of men's minds. Only one way leads to everlasting life — that way is Christ. All other ways lead to destruction. Christ died for all men that they through faith might live forever with Him. No other way of life is so rewarding as the Christian faith. It is not an easy way, but Christ can lighten the burden of every heart according to one's measure of faith. What causes men and women to forsake their careers in order to spend their lives in devoted service to Him? It is the result of a very personal and intimate relationship with Him, whereby the brilliance and attractiveness of this world no longer offers any enticement; satisfaction of the mind, body, and spirit is fulfilled only by His presence; and each day is lived in complete dependence upon Him, trusting that He shall provide for every need according to His will. Such a faith is not brought about by the will of man, but by the grace of God. Thus the Lord abides with the faithful in Him forever, strengthening them in the knowledge of His Word, and creating in them a joy unknown to worldly men. Cont. on Page 4, Col. 1 Glee Club Tour To Begin February 1 The Lebanon Valley College Glee Club, under the direction of James M. Thurmond, will leave for its annual tour Friday, February 1. For many years the Glee Club has been one of the outstand- ing organizations on campus. The devel- opment of the present group of mixed voices began in 1931, under the leader- ship of the late Professor Edgard P. Rut- ledge, and progressed to the extent that it now holds an enviable reputation among similar college organizations, and is noted throughout this region for its excellent musicianship and repertoire. The annual tours of the Glee Club be- gan in 1937. Usually lasting about a week, the tour is made during the month of February, alternating between an east- ern and southern trip. This year's tour takes the Glee Club in an eastward direc- tion, and includes concerts in Columbia, February 1; Ephrata, February 2; Red Lion and New Holland, February 3; Lititz and Philadelphia, February 4; Springfield and Georgetown, Delaware, February 5; Lakewood, New Jersey, February 6; Ly- kens and Minersville, February 7; Read- ing, February 8; and Williamsport, Feb- ruary 9. The program presented by the Glee Club is varied and includes sacred and classical music, as well as folk songs and lighter tunes. An orchestra will accom- pany the group and will furnish accom- paniment lo many of the numbers. In ad- dition to the choral pieces the program will also include solos by James Checket, trumpeter, and selections by a mixed vocal quintette and sextette. Membership in the Glee Club is a much sought-after privilege at Lebanon Valley College, and is open to any quali- fied student on the campus. In order to qualify, students must try out for this or- ganization in September and pass a mu- sical and \ocal test. The forty-one young men and women composing the Glee Club for this 1957 tour have been select- ed from over one hundred students who auditioned during the fall. Joan Conway accompanies the group. Since 1954, the Glee Club has been under the direction of assistant professor James M. Thurmond, M.A., Mus.Doc, who also conducts the band, brass ensem- ble, and girls' band. A native of Dallas, Texas, Dr. Thurmond is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadel- phia, and is a former member of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Until recently he was head of the U. S. Naval School of Music in Washington, D. C. ATTENTION JUNIORS If you have not received your pic- tures, you may do so by contacting Barbara Klinger or Roberta McBride in West Hall.

PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 11, 1957 String Quartet to Perform Here Students Visit State Hospital The Psychology 32 class studying ab- normal psychology under Dr. Jean Love took a field trip to Wernersville State Hospital Thursday afternoon, January 3. The hospital contains over 1900 patients with separate wards for the various types of patients. Occupational therapy shops are provided for the patients, including such activities as weaving, sewing, and crafts making. Wernersville has a unique method of treatment, an original idea still in the ex- perimental stage. Under this method a group of patients meets for psychother- apy with a psychologist and an occupa- tional therapist. Through the crafts medi- um the patients receive group therapy which Dr. Harold Smolinsky, the hos- pital's psychiatrist, feels is proving quite successful. The class members visited several wards for senile patients. Recreation rooms equipped with television sets are provided for the patients. For more deter- iorated patients maintenance therapy is used to reduce excitability and upsets within the hospital. Music also is played in many of the wards. Less deteriorated patients work in the laundry. One of the most interesting features was a demonstration of two patients to elicit behavior for the students to identi- fy. The first was a male patient with certain mongoloid tendencies; the second was a female paranoid schizophrenic. Psychologist Irwin Rosenfeld interviewed them in front of the students who were then permitted to ask questions. MOVING AND RENOVATIONS Cont. from Page 1, Col. 3 as a women's residence hall, and Mrs. J. E. Alexander, now head resident in Sheridan Annex, will succeed Mrs. Sulli- van in Sheridan Hall. Keister Residence Hall The freshmen men will move into Keister Hall as soon as renovations have been completed. It is hoped that these renovations will be finished January 25, so that the men can move tho following day. If the renovations have not been completed by then the men will move in as soon as possible. Mr. Alexander Crawford, who was the head resident in Men's Annex, will be the head resident in the hall. He will be as- sisted by several student proctors. THIS I BELIEVE Cont. from Page 3, Cols. 1 and 2 This is the blessing of God given to all men who accept Christ without reserva- tion as the Savior of their souls. On a campus such as Lebanon Valley, there are many beliefs represented. This column exists that these beliefs might be freely expressed. Any such expression either in agreement or contrary to the above would be submitted to the editor of the paper — Frank Kerchner Mr. Fred C. Edwards To Be Guest Speaker For Pi Gamma Mu January 31 at 7:00 p.m. Pi Gamma Mu will feature as their speaker for the evening Mr. Fred C. Edwards, manager of Personnel and Labor Relations of the Armstrong Cork Company, Lancaster, Pa. He will talk within the area of labor relations. Mr. Edwards matriculated at Wyoming Seminary in 1934 and at Duke University where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1938. At tho Armstrong Cork Company he gained -vide business experience, having served as sales trainee, assistant director of labor relations, and manager of per- sonnel and labor relations :n the Lancas- ter floor plant. He also worked in the Naval Intelligence from 1942-45. A member of NAM advisory commit- te for the physically handicapped, he be- longs to the Lancaster Manufacturers" Association and the Personnel Managers Club. The meeting will be held in the check- room of the Lynch Memorial Physical Education Building. All students are in- vited to attend. Pogie's Problem A new "go-go" man has arrived at LVC, and his name is Pogie. The writer hopes to see Pogie become the biggest man-on-campus within a short while. The reason I say this is because Pogie is going to do something for all of the students here at LV. What is Pogie going to do? He is going to help us obtain the college lounge that we have all been looking for- ward to. Pogie is the symbol of the Col- lege Lounge Drive, and he needs a bit of help in order to make our college lounge a reality. You may acquaint yourself with Pogie soon when he will appear on the sign in the main hall in the Ad. Building. On the sign, you will see Pogie attempting to climb the steps to the college lounge to attain the goal. Rather, the pogo stick cap him with a pogo stick? The pogo stick is a decided handicap, but it does not represent the money that is needed to attain the goal. Ratherfi the pogo stick represents the lack of coordination be- tween the members of the student body. We have been agitating for a college lounge for a long time, and this drive is our chance to prove that we are really serious in our desire to achieve a college lounge. If we students earnestly and sin- cerely desire this college lounge, let's back up our words with actions. We, on the College Lounge Commit- tee, have done our best in taking these first few steps forward, but the life of the college lounge depends not on us, but on you students, who we feel will not let us down on this drive for a college lounge SUPPORT POGIE'S PROJECTS Juilliard Musicians In February Concert Hailed as "America's greatest contribu- tion to quartet history," the Juilliard String Quartet, scheduled to perform at 8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall February 14, was bounded after World War II with the aid of the Juilliard Musical Foundation. Since its inception, the Juilliard String Quartet has played hundreds of concerts, and has had hundreds of triumphs in the United States, Canada and Europe. It has won the unanimous acclaim of the press of this country and abroad as a group "masterful — exciting — of the highest or- der" and has been praised for the "re- markable polish and suavity of their playing, their superb integration and fin- esse." Their Columbia lecordings have become an integral part m every record collector's library. The ensemble members, all of whom have distinguished themselves as solo per- formers, are Robert Mann and Robert Koff, violinists; Raphael Hillyer, violist; and Claus Adam, cellist. Their program will include selections by Bartok, De- bussy, and Mozart. The February 14 concert was arranged by Professor Thomas A. Lanese in con- junction with the Coolidge Foundation located in the Library of Congress, Wash- ington, DC. Tickets, $1.50 for adults and $1.00 for students, may be obtained from any member of the conservatory. W.A.A. Activities Ping Pong Sixty-six girls were signed up for the ping pong tournament set up by the Wo- men's Athletic Association beginning No- vember 5. Sandra Weit is in charge of the tournament. At the present time the contest is well into the fourth round with 18 girls remaining in the competition. February 22 is the deadline. Badminton A second pre-holiday tourney is bad- minton, which has also been moving into the fourth round. Heading the program, which has attracted 78 girls, is Mary Bea- ver. Swimming Thursday evening is "Swim Night' for W.A.A. members at the Hershey Wo- Cont. on Page 6, Col. 3 $590,000 GOAL REACHED Cont. from Page 1 The $590,000 represents gifts from alumni, business and industry, parents, friends and members of the Evangelical United Brethren Church in the Eastern Pennsylvania (UB) Conference and the Pennsylvania Conference. The sum does not include Lebanon Valley's Ford grant, $4,000 duPont grant or similar gifts not specified as development program contri- butions. La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 11, 1957 PAGE FIVb Dutch Treat DOT LENTZ One more day of classes, two days of freedom, and then the fireworks start. I would like to offer a bit of advise for both students and professors concerning these trying days. Plenty of sleep — I was always told to get plenty of sleep before the final awak- ening. Of course, the fact that this does not give you as much time to study (that's being polite for cram) does not make any difference because you have been study- ing all semester. Besides, think of the wonderful impression you will make with your bright and shining face at 8:30 a.m. Plenty of food — Food is not only nourishing, but also full of energy. Energy — that's the key word, the ingredient needed to push a pencil for three hours. Plenty of coffee — The brain must be functioning at its best in order to offer its brilliant revelations at the needed moment. Moment — what do I mean — hour or two or three. I realize that I am well qualified to give these suggestons. I became especially aware of this last Friday when a little girl from Annville asked me who my second grade teacher was last year. One thing is for sure, I may be stupid, but at least I'm not aging any. I would like to supplement my suggestions with a few picked up "hither and yon." To Students: Don't let this happen to you. It may prove disastrous. He read the textbook, He studied the notes, He outlined both. Then he summarized his outline. Then outlined his summary on 3 x 5 cards. Then reduced the card outline to one single card. Boiled the card down to one sentence. Boiled the sentence down to a phrase. Boiled the phrase down to a card. Entered the exam. Analyzed the question. And then, Forgot The Word. The University of Chicago To Professors: A — a rare feat. B — grade given student doing A work. C — grade given when professor loses grade book. Frosh — a fellow who buys his books before the first exam. Cramming — intellectual overeating after a long period of starvation. (ACP) Note: Please don't take these too seriously. We may suffer more than we are now. Quote of the Week: "Universities are full of knowledge; the freshmen bring a little in and the seniors take none away, and knowledge accumulates." Lousiana State Campus Briefs Arthur Ford, class of '59, has been appointed editor-in-chief of the L-Book for 1957-58 by Otto Wolpert, president of the Student Faculty Council. The staff in- cludes Ruth Sheetz, Jim Wright, Ned Heindel, and Carolyn Schairer. Plans are now being made for a new cover — the second new one in recent L-Book history. The last new one was in 1955. Of special interest will be the names of the new buildings and the new names of old buildings on campus. The expanding intramural program will also be pre- sented. Assignments have been made, and work has been begun. New pictures also will be used to brighten the pages. Work will be completed in June. Spanish Being Taught To Youngsters On Campus Mrs. Fiances T. Fields, instructor of Spanish and cataloguing librarian, has initiated a class in the instruction of the Spanish language to eleven first-to-sev- enth graders in conjunction with her class in advanced Spanish. The class meets twice each week in the Lynch Memorial Physical Education Building after regular school hours. In operation since October 20, the project is proving that the rudiments of a foreign language's idiomatic expression can be grasped by pre-high school children. Interest in a project of this nature be- gan several years ago with classroom discussions concerning the teaching of foreign languages in the elementary grades. Because several members of the advanced class are elementary education majors, they wanted an opportunity to put into practice the ideas that have al- ready been proved successful in the York and Allentown school districts. Although Mrs. Fields is the actual instructor of the class, Lebanon Valley College students often share in the teaching processes. Experience gained through these ses- sions is equally valuable to Mrs. Fields, the LVC students, and the children. All interested students and faculty members are invited to visit any of the sessions held each Tuesday and Friday at 4:00 p.m. Chem Club Plans Announced The Chem Club will hold its Annual Dinner-Dance Friday, February 8, 1957, at the Palmyra Legion. Bob Aulenbach's band will furnish the music. A science-fiction movie will be held in Science Hall sometime during the second semester. Everyone is invited to see this picture. Basketball The girls' basketball season is off in full swing with the new year. With eleven returning from last year's squad and ten incoming frosh, the team appears to be well on »'ts way to a good season. Mem- bers of this year's squad to date are: Seniors: Elaine Goodyear, Nancylee Kettle, Arlene Reynolds, Jeanne Winter, Joanne Young. Juniors: What's the matter! ? Sophomores: Peg Barbour, Mary Bea- ver, Este;ie Berger, Marion Brooks, Von- ni Evans, Louise Gay, Ruth Howell, Doris White. Freshmen: Shirley Angle, Eleanor Black, Donna Hill, Sally Lynch, Janice Noll, Jackie Simes, Bev Sprenkle, Judy Thomas, Barbara Woodley. — Jo Young Prof: — "What is a hypocrite?" Student: — "A student who comes into an eight o'clock with a smile on his face". — From the Bucknellian. PAGE SIX La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 11, 1957 The Beginning Of An Era Well, it finally happened. Old man Average, after taking a tremendous beating during the last four years in the Lynch Memorial Gymnasium, has at last corne through the battle with semblance of a smile on his battered face. To many of the Valley students and fans the roof fell in last Saturday night. Although defeat is never greeted with arms extended, this defeat was greeted with bitterness by many. The pride of the Valley, the first thing that they mentioned when speaking of their basketball team, 43 straight home wins, remains with yes- terday. These students and fans portray ungratefulness to its highest degree. It matter- ed not that the Dutchmen made it 42 against Scranton with a 78-74 overtime victory or that they came back from a nine point deficit late in the game to make it 43 against Albright 74-68. Nor did other great games and thrilling moments given to LVC followers in the past four years such as that 79-78 double overtime win against Moravian last year and the conquering of Temple 82-76 the year before that matter either. Yes, four years of outstanding basketball with stars like Landa, Sorrentino, Finkelstein, and Miller, to name a few, taking their turns at stardom — four years ending with the nucleus of this year's squad, Shover. Nelson, and Reinhard. When considering the richness of these gifts to the fans and students from the fabulous Flying Dutchmen, how little is the fact that the inevitable has come to pass. Forty-three out of forty-four isn't a bad record. In many minds this may be the end of an era, but it is also the beginning of an era. And it could be just as prosperous as the last one. Many things contributed to our loss last Saturday night, but "giving up" was not one of them. Trailing by 15 points with a minute remaining in the game not one player accepted the defeat that was inevitable by that time. But when the final whistle blew they had only praise for their opponents. To the students of Lebanon Valley College we say you can count yourselves lucky to be able to claim the Dutchmen as your own and to all Valley basketball players we join the student body in saying Thanks for everything, gang, and let's make it one consecutive home win Saturday night. Intramural At LVC In High Gear SCA and the Legionnaires continue to dominate the Intramural scene at Leba- non Valley as they are tied for the top spot in the basketball league with three wins and no losses. The Knights hold down third place with two wins against two losses while Philo and Resident Men share fourth with a one and three record. Kalo rounds out the lergue with a record of no wins and three losses. Aubrey Kerchner, Resident Men, leads the scorning parade as he is hitting at an 8.8 clip with 35 points followed by Irv Schuster, Philo, 30; Ken Piatt, Philo, 29; Raymond Coble, Legionnaires, 28, and Frank Giovinazzo, Knights, 27. The second round of the Intramural Council's individual sports of badminton, squash, and handball is nearing comple- tion. The addition of bowling in both indi- vidual and team phases is being consider- ed. This will depend on the amount of enthusiasm which the student body gener- ates. Suggestions have also been made concerning the faculty participating in in- tramural sports, and this may go into ef- fect when bowling is added to the list of intramural activities. TRACK MEETING All track candidates are urged by Coach Linta to attend an important meeting in the Northeast Physical Ed- ucation room at 4:00 January 29. Dutchmen Face E-town Saturday Night Here Coach Rinso Marquette's Flying Dutchmen, with their 43 consecutive home win streak only a memory after an 81-61 drubbing at the hands of an in- spired Moravian outfit last Saturday, are preparing to make it number one in a new win streak as they play host to Eli- zabethtown College this coming Saturday night. Marquette is reported to be counting on the same five men that have started all the games so far this season. Captain Dick Shover, Bob Nelson, and Don Gri~ der are all averaging in the double fig- ures with four-year-man Don Reinhard clearing the boards. Bob Dinerman rounds out the top five. The Dutchmen, with the pressure off, are expected to come rushing back, al- though they face in Elizabethtown one of the top teams on their schedule. They have a fast, aggressive, but comparatively small squad with men like lim Sarbaugh and Sal Paone who can break up any ball game. TEMPLE TICKETS Anyone desiring tickets for the Temple game at the Palestra January 26 can obtain them in The Office of the Director of Athletics from Janu- ary 23 to January 26. Valley Win Streak Ended At 43 Straight By Moravian Five At approximately ten o'clock Saturday night, a home winning streak that ranked with the best came to an abrupt halt at 43 straight. For the Dutchmen it meant the end of a four-year reign that saw some of the top teams go down to defeat on these magic floors. Moravian, 81-61 victors, wasted no time in showing their intentions by get- ting off to a 27-16 lead early in the game. However, the Dutchmen, led by senior Bob Nelson, tied the game at halftime. Then came the second half. Trailing by one at 43-42, Moravian hit for eight straight points and the Valley never came closer than five points after that. Bob Nelson led the scoring with 24 points and captain Dick Shover chipped in with 18. Moravian had all five starters hit double figures with Fritz Toner tally- ing 21. In the preliminary game the Valley IV's won by a 72-65 score. W.A.A. ACTIVITIES Cont. from Page 4, Col. 3 men's Club. The cost is fifty cents per person (only two bits if there are more than eight).

Flying Dutchmen Drop Game To F&M 82-64 Last night the Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen suffered their third loss of the season as they traveled to Franklin and Marshall College where they absorbed a 82-64 defeat. The game was played on rather even terms throughout the first half. Sparked by the brilliant play of Don Reinhard, Valley held a one point lead at the half- way mark with the score 42-41. However, Valley was never really in the game after that. The second half was F&M's game practically all the way; as they went on to win 82-64.

Miller. Dr. Miller made this announcement at the opening Chapel Program last weeV. Tuition for next semester will be $650, which is an increase of fifty dollars over this year. The boarding fee and the stu- dent activites fee will remain the same. However, there will be an increase in some room rents. The fees will vary from $175 to $200. The public is invited to attend a recital February 18 at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall. LVC Receives $300 Grant For Library Recently Lebanon Valley College re- ceived a $300 subgrant from the Assoca- tion of College and Reference Libraries, which is a division of the American Li- brary Association. This money will be used to supplement the supply of music scores. Approximate- ly 150 scores will be purchased and cata- logued by the time the library is opened for first semester next fall. These score.', will be used by the music department and by students in other departments in the Gossard Library's music listening room, which will be equipped with four record players and twelve earphone at- tachments. Plans Are Underway For "Dedication Day" Lebanon Valley College development program administrators have named May 18 as "Dedication Day" during which three new buildings will be dedicated and the close of an initial development cam- paign officially celebrated. Paul L. Strickler, of Lebanon, general chairman of the $590,000 fund-raising drive recently ended, has accepted new duties as chairman of the committee ar- ranging for the May date. Tentative plans for the campus event call for a morning convocation service, separate dedicatory services at each build- ing, and tours of the college's new facili- ties. (Cont. on p. 6, col. 2) Juilliard Musicians To Play Mozart, Bartok and Debussy Thursday, February 14, Lebanon V<i?- ley students will have the memorable pleasure of being able to see and hear one of the most outstanding string quartets in the world. Lebanon Valley Colbge Conservatory of Music will present the Juilliard String Quartet in our own Engle Hall. The members of the quartet, which has won the unanimous acclaim of the press, not only in our nation, but abroad as well, are all distingished solo per- formers. Mr. Lanese, string professor has been fortunate enough to engage Robert Mann, the first violinist, to ap- pear with the conservatory orchestra in the spring of this year. At that time Mr. Mann will play Beethoven's violin con- certo. The members of the quartet are also the principal teachers of chamber music at the famous Juilliard School of Music in New York City. Since its inception, tne quartet has played hundreds of concerts and has had hundreds of repeated tri- umphs in the United States, Canada and Europe. They have recorded their talents many times for the Columbia Record Company. Fairly recently, the complete string quartet works of Bartok were re- leased. One of these is included on their program here. During the past month, the quartet appeared on the well-known television program, "Omnibus," with con- ductor Leonard Bernstein. The topic was Modern Music. Mr. Bernstein used the quartet to good advantage, demonstrating modern music as well as their outstanding virtuosity. The concert at Lebanon Valley is be- ing made possible through the coopera- tion of the Elizabeth Sprague Collidge Foundation in the Library of Congress and by the painstaking and arduous work of Mr. Lanese. Tickets for this event may be obtained from any member of the conservatory. The prices are $1.00 for students and $150 for adults. Tickets will not be sold at the door. The concert will begin at 8:30 p.m. Mr. Otto R. Kj|»th, vocational sub- jects teacher at Hershey Junior Col- lege and the Derry Township public schools, has been appointed to teach a new course in engineering drafting this semester according to an an- nouncement made recently by Dean Howard M. Kreitzer. This course is a part of the arts- engineering curriculum which is now in its third year. PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 8, 1957 T)ke Skovenidtic Mull.,. Four Paragraphs In Search of a Theme . . "Fear not, sad heart, and cease repin- ing. . ." Half - a - hundred fretting freshmen crammed the Keister castle's halls; fifty final fatigued males moved their -ables — books and all. A few necessary rules gov- erning hours and habits bring home to the student body at large for about the seventh time the necessity of self-preser- vation and self-preparation. Each stu- dent is responsible for himself and see- ing to it that schedules, classes, dead- lines, and requirements are met. When the individual defaults, he brings regi- mentation upon himself at best. "Be- hind the clouds the sun is shining . . ." This can also be a collective thing. Il a student body can not take care of its own interests through unified effort seri- ously directed toward a legitimate and evident end, isolated criticism as passive unrest will not yield any benefits to any- one. The smallest evidence of student unity would be an improvement and would be an indication to the administra- tion that there existed more integration on this campus than just in I.S. 20, LS. 30 or I.S. lOx. An all-out demonstration through cooperation in next month's Col- lege Lounge Month could have far-reach- ing effects on the tone and temper of this college. "Yours is the common fate of all . . " For a college campus is more than new dorms or old new dorms, it is also a time and place for growth. More student re- sponsibility could produce a beneficial campus life, one more geared to diversi- fied interest which contribute to the stu- dent's growth. But as in any field proof of responsibility must be demonstrable prior to — and made convincing. Wheth- er it be filling out applications for de- grees, automobile registration, over-night passes, or Mad subscriptions, obligations must be met promptly and in the correct spirit in order to lead to more worth- while gains. "Into each life some rain must fall ..." Which brings us back to finals out of which something good can even come. This year's major contribution I would say was the emergence from Old North and Old Men's of Otto Revere as the most unselfish and unheralded carrier of good tidings since his great, great, greaf grandfather sallied forth Paul. Otto's devotion to rounding up the finals and reporting what papers were available where — and a host of other aids — easily mark him for special praise in the face of such a harrowing period. And for his courage, perseverance, bravery, and stoi- cal qualities in the face of sheer annihi ation there is the dedication of the poem which runs throughout this article. Did YOU hear about Jack Bell? B-plus going into the final, C for the final, D for the course! "Some days must be dark and dreary. . ." Joke and Allegory Tell this one to a philosopher or a moron: The other day I saw a man walk into a restaurant. The man had a banana in his ear. A waitress came up to him and said, "Mister, you've got a banana in your ear." The man said, "You'll have to speak louder; I've got a banana in my ear." Subtle? That hasn't anything to do with what I'm about to say, unless you've arrived at the opinion that it says nothing about anything, in which case 1 guess a pretty good comparison could be drawn. I lay my head on the pillow early that night and it seemed as I lay there that the pillow became stone and I was Jacob lying in the wilderness. Then be- fore me there opened all of heaven. A ladder stretched up above me and on that ladder ascended and descended people — not angels, but people. But as I looked closer I saw that the people were actually faculty members and stu- dents. And all was confusion. All was utter and complete confusion. My soul yearned for peace and security, but I grew more and more restless as I watched the melee unfold itself. The ladder rocked and swayed as students and faculty alike clambered over one another to reach the invisible top from which direction there emanated a blinding gold brilliancy. I mentioned that there were some who descended the ladder — these descended with a scowl on their faces and many of them grabbed hold of comrades, pulling them down in their leech-like grips. More than once a faculty member fought his way bravely down a few rungs of the ladder to help a weakening student, but I shall never forget the sight of students plummeting in free air down into the abysmal muck below. I could not help asking myself, "By whom had they been pushed?" It was then that the understanding of the symbols of my dream came to me. The ladder, of course, was this institution and the golden brilliancy was Wisdom — the holiest of holies. But my understanding did not pacify my soul and my bowels yearned for peace. Then it was that the eye of one descending the ladder burnt itself through the smoke of havoc that surrounded me, and eternal peace, like a stream of sweet perfume, flowed into my soul. The serenity that I knew was to be mine communicated itself between that eye and my burning brain. The owner of the eye descended the ladder with a directness and puv- poseness in his steps. As he stepped onto the wilderness plateau I noticed some- thing in his hand. Behind him there followed one who carried what seemed to be a large box. I felt that locked up in these two objects was the key and the answer to this whole struggle which had been portrayed before me. Others had gathered around me and in their eyes I could see the same burning desire that I knew was in mine. In the distance I heard a clock strike eleven o'clock. He was standing before me now and from his hand I took the object with greed and hungering — I unwrapped and ate the hoagy. I was satisfied. — SRS.

Flowers, all are having a rushing business, for this is the time of the year when that extra special person hopes to be remembered. The girls like to be told how beautiful they wish they were, and the boys like to be informed how much like Tony Curtis they look. How- ever, don't get too carried away because even though this is Valentine time, flattery is still soft soap, and soft soap is 90 per cent lye. For those others who are as lonely as an intellectual at an Elvis Presley movie, remember there's always Mom and Pop. They like their little darling to remember them, too.

Pi Gamma Mu Notes "The welfare of companies depends on the relationships of the union and the company." This is the belief which was stated by Mr. Fred C. Edwards, manager of personnel and labor relations for Armstrong Cork Company, Lan- caster, at the Pi Gammu Mu meeting Thursday, January 31. In his speech, "Current Trends in Labor Relations," Mr. Edwards discussed the size and structure of the union, its objectives and employer-employee rela- tions. He related personal experiences concerning the union-employer relation- ships, expressing the need for flexibility in these associations. Following this special program arranged by Ronald Weinel and Michael Hottenstein, a brief business meeting was conducted by the president, Lee Kunkel. The society is planning a two-day trip to New York for Pi Gamma members Thursday and Friday, March 7 and 8. Initial plans were made for the annual banquet to be held at the Palmyra Legion this spring. The next Pi Gamma Mu meeting, in charge of Darwin Glick, is scheduled for Monday evening, February 18. All members are requested to be present. K-D Dinner-Dance Set for March 16 This year Kalo and Delphian are planning to hold their annual dinner-dance at the Penn-Harris Hotel in Harrisburg on the evening of March 16. Don Trostle and his Orchestra have been engaged to provide the musical background for the dance, constituting the latter part of the evening's entertainment. (Cont. on p. 5, col. 3) FTA Day February 12 This year FTA Day has taken a jump from its traditional (we've always done it that way) first Tuesday of the month to the second Tuesday, which happens to be February 12. Up to this time the Lebanon Valley College campus hasn't been hearing too much of the activities of the Futu'c Teachers of America this year, unless oae is an ardent fan of the organization. This month, however, is our chance to shine. Tuesday morning in the weekly chapel program FTA will have as theii guest speaker Miss Clara Cockerille, assistant superintendent of schools, Armstrong County, Kittanning, Pennsylvania. Miss Cockerille may be familiar to some of the professors on campus, as she spoke here seven years ago when LVC inaugurated FTA Day. The LVC Glee Club, having just returned from its annual tour, will sing "Elijah Rock," a Negro Spiritual, in keeping with Lincoln's birthday. James Checket will be another feature of the chapel hour. The evening's entertainment will take place on the stage of Engle Hall begin- ning at 8:30 p.m. The movie, "All the King's Men," will be shown, in addition to a travelogue featuring June Lantz, or- ganist. In connection with the travelogue, there will be a two-dollar prize. Tickets for the evening are thirty-five cents and may be purchased from any FTA mem- ber or at the door the evening of the movie. We, the members of FTA (now known on the state level as SEA — Student Edu- cation Association), hope that the rest of the student body will join us February 12 and help us to make this year's FTA Day the biggest and best we have ever had As has been mentioned, FTA is now known as the Student Education Associa- tion on the state level and as of this writ- ing it will be known by the same name on the LVC campus. This change of name has been effected in order to sep- arate the college chapters from the hi^h school chapters. See you February 12. Let's give Miss Cockerille a royal welcome. — Barbara Ann Geltz ATTENTION JUNIORS The Junior Class has taken appro- priate action and has decided to sub- stantially reduce its class dues. The figure which was arbitrarily agreed upon is eight dollars dues for the full four years attendance here at LVC. (This is a ten-dollar reduction from the original figure). The dues will be accepted on an installment basis. By this action the class enthusiastically encourages all class members to coop- erate fully in order that they may pai ticipate in future class activities.

"Only three seats, sir." — Susquehanna As part of the annual Kalo-Delphian Week-end, the two societies are going to present their performance of Joseph Kes- selring's amazingly amusing comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace, on the evening of March 15 in Engle Hall. The play, which originally opened on Broadway August 18, 1941, enjoyed a very successful run and has since that time been acted by a wide range of dramatic groups, both professional and amateur. The entire action of the play takes place in three acts (four scenes). The main plot involves the actions of the kind-hearted old ladies (the Brewster sisters) who have as their chief pleasure in life the "meriful" poisoning of lonely gentlemen whom fate happens to throw into their hands. The return of their erring nephew Jonathan, who just hap- pens to look like Boris Karloff, and his side-kick, Dr. Einstein, brings to a hum- orous crisis the repercussions of the un- usal habit of the two Misses Brewster. The shenanigans of Teddy Brewster, who avidly identifies himself with the colorful Teddy Roosevelt of Rough Rider and White House fame, tends greatly to heighten the hilarious confusion in the Brewster household in, of all places, Brooklyn. Apparently, the only sane member of the Brewster household is nephew Mortimer Brewster, who is by profession and perhaps not by choice, a drama critic. Mortimer, like most sane individuals, has a fiancee who in this case turns out to be the daughter of the local minister, Dr. Harper. Intersperse the foregoing description with the at- tempts of several members of the local Brooklyn police force to try to achieve some semblance of law and order in the Brewster household and you have what promises to be a very delightful evening's entertainment. Players For Production Are Announced Kalo-Delphian's production of Arsenic and Old Lace includes the following cast in their respective roles: Phyllis Luckens (Mary Jane Starr, understudy), Abby Brewster; Joan Turner, Martha Brewster; Florence Rhen, Elaine Harper; Bob Mus- ser, Mortimer Brewster; Standy Stover, Teddy Brewster; Murray Grosky, Jona- than Brewster; Chet Rebok, Dr. Einstein; Ralph Ziegenfuss, the Reverend Dr. Harper; Lewis Sheaffer, Mr. Gibbs; Art Ford, Officer O'Hara; Fred Eshleman, Officer Brophy; Lee McCauley, Officer Klein; Paul Rock II, Lieutenant Roomey, and Steve Sevits, Mr. Witherspoon.

Miss Elizabeth Taylor, who served as Dean of Women at Lebanon Valley during 1954-55, gave much support to the forming of this organization after joining the HJC faculty. Wednesday evening, February 6, in Philo Hall, the SCA Fellowship group launched a series of studies based on Denis Baly's Chosen Peoples. This first discussion led by Sandy Stover, was the first of a series of six discussions planned for this series. Sunday morning, January 10, at 10:30 a.m., Miss June Hartranft of the Harford School for Girls, Moyamba, Sierra Leone, West Africa, will be the guest speaker in the College Church for World Service Day. Miss Hartranft will re- turn to the campus in early March to serve as a discussion group leader during Religious Emphasis Week. Under the leadership of Doris White, SCA chairman of the Commission on Worldrelatedness, students from other countries who are enrolled in nearby col- leges will be the guests of our student body during the week-end of March 2 and 3. Eighteen students from Lebanon Valley College were in attendance at the first session of a Teenager's Witness Group sponsored by the Board of Evan- gelism of the Evangelical United Brethren Church in Lancaster County. The service was held January 31 in the Otterbein Evangelical United Brethren Church of Lancaster. Dick Cassel, Nathalie Davis, June and Wilbur Lantz shared in the program from our student body. The Twelfth Annual Religious Emphasis Week on our campus will open Monday evening, March 4, under the leadership of Virginia Smedley, chairman. Assisting in the executive committee are Jack Stearns, co-chairman, Donald Burkhart, Nathalie Davis, John Lebo, and Wilbur Lantz. Coach Marquette is the faculty advisor. A panel of Church Vocations students from Lebanon Valley College present- ed a program at the monthly meeting of the Women's Society of Christian Service of the Methodist Church, Cornwall, February 5. Those participating were: Sandy Stover, June Lantz, Marlene Myers, Robert Landis, Wilbur Lantz and the chaplain. Cy Dietrich, now located in Fort Benning, Georgia, has just been named Chaplain's Assistant. Cy of the class of '56 served as Director of the Student Christian Association Choir on the campus. This I Believe It is unwise to believe in anything too strongly. It is dangerous to con- sider one's beliefs to be beyond modification, or even refutation, just as it is dangerous to utterly lack confidence in one's personal opinions. And yet too many would have us believe that their own particular judgments concerning politics, or morality, or religion are not sound, but immutably accurate. Their beliefs, in a word, are to be considered "absolutely" true. To contest these opinions is to commit heresy. The advantages of such a viewpoint are obvious. First, it is ridiculously easy to defend a belief considered "absolutely" true. Any counter-proposal is then to be regarded as false, and the bothersome task of examining the proposal is eliminated. Defense of one's view becomes not a matter of logical argument, but of obstinate declaration. If the belief in question is beyond the scope of logic, no opposing view can be tolerated. There can exist no difference of opinion. Besides eliminating the irritating job of reflective thinking, this view- point affords the advantage of a sense of security in the confidence of one's own Tightness. If this sense of Tightness sometimes degenerates into an air of condescension or self-righteousness, it can easily be overlooked in view of the validity of the belief being defended. If the primary goal of belief is to put the mind at ease, then obstinate dogmatism is the surest way to attain it. But do not drag "truth" into it, for that is another matter. We cannot say with any confidence that there is any absolute truth con- cerning any field which man has chosen to investigate. The findings of the exact sciences, regarded by most as the closest efforts to establishing truth (con- cerning the physical world) which man has uncovered, cannot be considered absolutely true. We are unable to grasp the absolute even when dealing with tangibles. We must not be so presumptuous as to suppose we have uncovered the absolute in dealing with the transcendental. Perhaps truth is entirely a matter of convenience. We have no reason to assume it contains even a fragment of the absolute. And yet many would cling tenaciously to a belief because they believe it founded on absolute truth. Such a view, 1 have attempted to show, is mean- ingless. Such a view destroys any incentive toward the more consistent, or the more serviceable alternative. It completely shakes the interplay of ideas. If this college, or any college means to encourage intellectual development, it must encourage the questioning of even the most cherished beliefs. Otherwise the pur- pose for its existence will be destroyed. — JAV CAMPUS BRIEFS (Cont. from p. 3) Although many of the details concern- ing preparation for the evening have yet to be worked out, these should be re- solved within the next few weeks. Dr. Marjorie Morrison To Speak At Psychology Club The Psychology Club is presenting at its regular monthly meeting February 14 at 7 p.m., Dr. Marjorie Morrison who is affiliated with the Veteran's Administra- tion Hospital in Lebanon. The place of the meeting has not yet been definitely set, but a notice will be posted on the main bulletin board at the library prior to the meeting. Dr. Morrison will speak on the subject of marriage counseling, a topic in which psychology and sociology students will be particularly interested. Everyone on campus is cordially invited to attend this program. Political Science Club Notes Career opportunities for college stu- dents in Federal Civil Service were dis- cussed at the meeting of the Political Science Club held last week. Dr. V. F.

History, LA VIE, or Seminar — Which Should It Be? It was approximately 2:15 in the after- noon as I sat in the back of room 115 at Hershey High School. I was observ- ing a world history class as a part of my student teaching requirements. No, on second thought it is unfair to say I was observing the class. It would probably be better to say that I was just existing in the class. One moment I was thinking about the terms the teacher was dictating — Koran — min- aret. . . . The next I was thinking about the material that I didn't have for La Vie and it was to go to press . . . Again the teacher was saying — Mecca — 632 A.D. . . . When would I read all of that seminar assignment? . . . Suddenly this oblivian was ended and I was back in reality. (The dismissal bell had rung!!) As I sat there at the desk thinking, I resolved to do two things. 1. Do not count this hour as one for credit in observation. 2. Make an editor's note for La Vie. DMB Editor's Note: Are you interested in jour- nalism? Would you be interested in writ- ing - for EA VIE? Do you like typing:? Would .voii like to help on I,A VI K staff? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, please tell me so. You can drop a note in the I. A VIE mailbox in the Student Personnel Office. There will be a re-organi- zational meeting of the staff soon. So watch the bulletin board for an announce- ment and then be there. PAGE SIX La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 8, 1957 LVC Topples Dickinson; Drop Games To Temple, West Chester and Drexel The Flying Dutchmen broke a three game losing streak January 19 when they topped Dickinson College by a 67- 56 score. Bob Nelson led the Valley scorers as he poured in 19 points. Bob Dinerman helped the winning cause with 16. The Dutchmen started off by building up a 22-12 lead, but had to settle for a 32-29 half time edge. Dickinson came back with a rush to lead briefly 35-34, but a set shot by Don Grider gave LVC the lead for keeps. Dickinson brought the score to 63-56 near the end of the game, but two Dick Shover fouls and a Nelson jump shot ended the threat. Temple 70-59 An outmanned Lebanon Valley squad dropped a 70-59 decision to Temple Uni- versity in the first game of a double header at the Palestra January 26. Although the Dutchmen led early in the game 4-3 on a set shot by Don Gli- der and a Don Reinhard jump shot, the Owls, behind the sharp shooting of Guy Rodgers, pulled out to a 33-16 lead, but two fouls and three buckets by Dick Sho- ver and two foul conversions by Bob Kerstetter brought the count to 35-26 near the end of the half. Starting the second half with a 39-28 lead, the Owls pulled away to a 50-30 edge, but with the inspired play of Sho- ver and the phenomenal sharpshooting of freshman Barry Skaler, the lead was cut to 61-50 with seven minutes remaining The rest of the game was played on even terms, giving Temple the 70-59 win Shover and Skaler paced the Dutch- men with 26 and 15 respectively while Rodgers led Temple with 21 counters. West Chester 73-65 The Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen traveled to West Chester Wednesday night, January 30, only to go down to de- feat by a 73-65 count at the hands of the West Chester State Teachers College Rams. The deciding blow was dealt in the early minutes of the game as the big purple and yellow team amassed a 13-0 spread against the helpless Dutchmen. Dick Shover finally knocked the lid off the bucket when he dropped a jump shot from the key. It seemed as though the Valley would overcome the spread as they cut the deficit to three points. Again the Rams got hot and built up a fifteen- point lead only to have it shaved to the final margin of eight by the Valley. Coeducational Intramurals Get Underway, Bowling Also To Be Introduced Soon Coeducational Intramurals tops the list of activities this report with the Women's Athletic Association and the Men's Intra- mural Council combining to bring about this novel experiment. Faculty members and their wives a>.e also invited to sign up for either the bad- minton or table tennis tournaments which are getting underway. Rosters have been sent to captains of the various teams in preparation for a 1 owling league. Five men can participate at a time for each team, but eight men are needed to fill out a roster. The matches will be held at the Leba- non Recreation Center on the Cornwall Road and the individual champion will be detei mined by total pins over the en- tire season. SCA continues to dominate the basket- ball league as of February 5 with a 5-0 record. The Knights are right behind them with 5-1, followed by the Legionnaires, 4-2; Resident Men, 1-4; Kalo, 1-4; and Philo. 1-5. Frank Giovinazzo of the Knights is the leading scorer with 38 points. Ned A. Linta, Director of Men's Intra- murals and physical education, announced that a cabinet will be placed beside the Physical Education Office contain'og all the gym equipment. This will be open from nine to five Monday through Friday and will be based on the honor system. ATTENTION WAA MEMBERS Wha's-a-matter-for you, anyway, girls? Someone either has not been playing tournament games in badmin- ton and pingpong, or is forgetting to mark it on the master schedule on the WAA bulletin board. Let's get with it! Drexel 77-74 Drexel handed LVC their third straight home loss after trailing by seven points at halftime last Saturday night, 77-74. The Valley started fast and built up an early 25-14 lead, but a second half spurt by the Dragons gave them as much uS an eleven point lead. Once again, however, the Dutchmen fought back to within one point with less tnan a minute to go. Two Drexel foul rhots then proved too much for the Val- ley as the game ended up at 77-74. Although this was a bitter defeat for Lebanon Valley, there was a bright light rhining. The Flying Dutchmen played their most aggressive game of the year with Dick Shover pouring in 28 points to lead all scorers, and Bob Kerstetter clear- ing the boards. "DEDICATION DAY" (Cont. from p. 1, col. 2) A banquet during the evening will high- light the day's activities. The Rev. Thomas S. May, assistant to the president, is a member of the commit- tee, and he is coordinating the student groups that will participate in this pro- gram. Flying Dutchmen Face E-Town and Dickinson The Lebanon Valley College dribble^ face one of their toughest week-ends when they meet the Elizabethtown Blue Jays tonight and Dickinson tomorrow night. E-town owns a 55-50 victory over the Dutchmen on the LVC court making them favorites in tonight's clash at the Hershey arena. Lehigh and Gettysburg square off in the first game of the dou- bleheader. The Red Devils from Dicxinson are one of the Valley victories this year. The Dutchmen found little opposition in thei- previous game with LVC emerging a 67- 56 victor. This game, to be played on the Valley court, may break the three game losing streak that the Flying Dutchmen have compiled after having their 43 con- secutive home win streak broken by Mor- avian College. Dick Shover is setting a torrid pace against recent opopsition as he hit for 26 against Temple, 28 against Drexel and 25 against West Chester. Freshman Bar- ry Skaler, sophomore Bob Kerstetter, and juniors Don Grider and Bob Dinerman have looked good in the last few games. Dutchwomen To Open Season On Monday It was great to see so many of the stu- dents at "the scrimmage which wasn't" Monday, January 28. However, since the Carlisle team could not make it to Leba- non Valley, the two women's basketball teams of LV played against each other. A total of four practice games have been scheduled to prepare the girls for the first invasion by Millersville on Mon- day evening, February 11, in the main gymnasium. Saturday, February 16, the second game to be played on the courts, will see Moravian and Lebanon Valley as opponents. Elizabethtown is next with the battle being staged Tuesday evening. February 19. The Saturday morning games which take place on the local court will be at 10:30 a.m. and the Tues- day evening events at 7:30 p.m. The coach for the women's teams, Miss Betty Jane Bowman, is looking forward to a good season with lots of fire and fury. The girls need your support, too. Don't forget the games February 11, 16 and 19. Give the teams a boost with y«W presence. (You might bring a friend or two along with you!!!)

BELL Foreign Students To Visit LVC Campus During the weekend of March 2 and 3, approximately twelve students from sev- e»al countries of the world will meet here at Lebanon Valley College for Interna- tional Weekend. This meeting is an an- nual event which is sponsored by the World Relatedness Commission of the Student Christian Association. The guests of honor, who will represent such coun- tries as Germany, Greece, Ireland, Korea, Puerto Rico, Estonia, and Austria, are students attending various colleges in this general area of Pennsylvania. Several interesting and entertaining (Cont. on p. 3, col. 3) High School Seniors To Compete For Scholarship Awards Saturday, February 23, approximately 175 high school seniors will gather on Lebanon Valley's campus to participate in the $27,300 competitive scholarship program. D. Clark Carmean, Director of Admissions, said that students from Penn- sylvania, five neighboring states, and the District of Columbia will vie for 22 tui- tion scholarship offers. The annual awards include, five full-tuition, five half- tuition, and twelve quarter-tuition schol- arships. The students will be welcomed to Leb- anon Valley by Dean Howard M. Kreit- zer at a morning chapel program. The students will then take a general aptitude test to be followed by personal inter- views. In the afternoon, prospective col- lege students will take written examina- tions in the subjects of their choice, and music students wil take vocal or instru- mental auditions. In the evening, the high school stu- dents will be invited to attend the basket- lail game between Lebanon Valley and Fianklin and Marshall. After the game, a dance, sponsored by the Legionnaires, will be held in the auxiliary gymnasium. "KNIGHTS" CONTRIBUTE TO "POGO'S" FUND "Pogo" edged along toward the sec- and step on the ladder of the college Lounge Fund last week when the Knights of the Valley contributed $25 to the growing fund. This group has pledged adonation of $100 to be given in four installments during the school year. Tthe recent contribution was the second by the Knights. The ultimate goal of the fund is $2500. Almost one-third of that amount — $813.70 — has already been raised. PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 22, 1957 Z)he Skovenistic (Bull,,, Anonymous Letter Brings Fame to LVC State Civil Defense authorities have recently released news that they have drawn upon a new evacuation program based on a study of those used by Lebanon Valley College students on Friday afternoons. After exclusive endeavors to discover the underlying pattern of such a complete dispersion of organisms, Jane C. Petrillo, president of the Pennsylvania Civil Defense Commission, Local 284, announced that the system used has been harnessed and will be used in a state-wide alert Febru- ary 29. This program was first brought to the attention of CD officials through an anonymous letter received by the Women's Chapter, Jane C. Petrillo, president, field office in Stinking Spring. Investigations led to the rendering of a favorite report to' the state convention held in Harrisburg, and a committee was established to investi- gate further into the applicability of this system for state-wide use. This committee, under cover, made detailed studies of all phases of the movement and formulated the new state procedures. George W. Lewis, spokesman for this committee, said in a news conference that the deserting of this college campus was one of the most fas- cinating operations that he had ever witnessed. "How students could perfect such an evacuation is still a mystery." He went on to say, "They have done, without any planning or forethought, what CD officials have been unable to do during four years of experimentation." Civil Defense officials voiced their thanks to the students in a special assembly for helping them to find and establish these new techniques. "If we," proclaimed speaker Jane C. Petrillo, "can only convince and encourage the people of our state to desert, abandon, and denounce their homes and places that they owe so very much to, as completely as do you students, Pennsylvania need never fear a high death rate during an atomic attack. If we can make the people of this state believe that they owe it nothing, just as you students believe that you owe nothing to your college, and if we can persuade them to desert their homes before an attack, just as you desert your campus at the least provocation, our program will be an example to the nation as a boo-ing success." Euthyphro (an earnest Philonian) BE AWARE OF THE TIDES IN MARCH The institution itself is like the sea it- self — constant; the student body is like the body of the sea — fluctuating, and ever on the move. It is the ebb and flow in the urge and sub-urge of the body-student which de- termine its direction and position in the total campus scene. This over-all view has its storm cen- ters, its squalls; it also has its periods ol relative calm, even stagnation. As faculty and administration are con- cerned with curricula and physical growth of the college, student responsibility is to concern itself with the growth of the im- portance of themselves, their class, spe- cifically and generally, in the over-all campus picture. The flow, the rise, the urge does not come about in stagnant water in dammed streams. Our dreams must be the sub-urges which give body to the tides of our movements. As an on-going student class we have had other movements in our past which have ebbed and flowed and have been with varying degrees of success. But in some cases the value of the student body has grown as an important element on com- pus. In one week it will be March. March is College Lounge Month. Thirty-one days devoted to making a college lour- go an actuality when registration rears its serpent-like head next fall. The month as a whole will be devoted to rais- ing money to fulfill the students' share of the bill necessary to convert Carnegie ' Hall" from a library of sorts into a sort of lounge. Specific projects to "fill the general coffers" include: March 8 a Hi-Fi Dance in the usually vacant main gymnasium. Records which you bring will provide the accompaniment. Selections will no doubt vary from Little Richard to Alfred E. Neuman. March 26 a movie at the Astor sinner- ama: "The Wild Ones," starring Marlon Brando. You will be expected to pro- vide your own T-shirts and black leather jackets with the "What-Me Worry?"-kid on the back. March 30 will ciimax College Lounge Month with a Flamingo Club dance hi- lited by a 16-piece band. PLUS, plus a variety show and a CORONATION of a King and Queen! This Carnegie Hall campaign will be the biggest flop in LVC history UNLESS the unit-body is aware that this is one of the "tides in the affairs of man" and shows more individual concern for the good of others and more group coopera- 1 tion in the attainment of a common goal. Among the millions of pictures which flooded La Vie mailbox this has been se- lected by our distinguished list of judges as the most thought-provoking, or maybe just plain provoking. It is a candid photo of Reginald Q. Van Neuman, one of the world's great thinkers and banana lovers. His outstanding intelligence is obvious when one observes that he eats the ban- ana and then puts the banana peel in his ear. Cool play.

Riley La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 22, 1957 PAGE THREE GrO Dutch Treat DOT LENTZ You know, I received the longest letter from my parents last week. In fact, I couldn't wait to rip it open and pour over the manuscript. It you're like me, you like mail. Its' always great to receive it especially when you never write. This choice piece of postscript was remarkable because the last time I wrote home was .... well, anyway, I tore it open, read it, and guess what? I was sorry I did. It seems that Mom and Pop were the lucky recipients of a 9 by 12, inch photostatic paper marked up with all kinds of letters. I was not happy with this gem from LVC. My parents were not happy with this gem from LVC. At least, that's what I gathered from the letter as far as I read. Did the same thing happen to you? I decided to analyze this situation, and with the help of several publications from institutions such as LVC, I came up with these conclusions. The Formula for Success: Do not bother with a textbook. Remind yourself frequently how dull the course is. If you must study, try to lump it together and get it over with. The mo$t suitable time is the last week of school. Have a few friends handy during study periods so that you can chat when bored. Stay up all night before finals. You can spend the first half of the evening discussing your determination to cram and the latter half drinking coffee or whatever your tastes prefer. Write your examinations rapidly. Glance at the question and then put down your first impression. Remember that success in life is your main aim and never let extraneous matters such as grades in- terfere with this objective. Careful research has led me to believe that this is the best method of attack. Quote of the Week: An event has happened, upon which it is difficult to speak and impossible to be silent. —Edmund Burke This I Believe To whom or what do you owe your allegiance? Do you bow at the shrine of pleasure or the dizzy merry-go-round of modern activities? Maybe the intellectual power of your choice professor is your idol or that spanking new brilliantly red Lin- coln you can pass on Main Street? Or do you covet power and position, or worse still, do you marvel at your own meager abilities and capacities? In other words, "Who is your master?" Many people today bow at the shrines of Humanism, Na- tionalism, Secularism, and Intellectualism without being aware of it; and to other gods: covetousness, money, success, pride of possession, or the subtler pride of the mind. This question, "Who is my master?" involves the matter of choosing. . .and we must choose. Our very nature requires this of us. A man who is selfish cannot at the same time be kind. Nor can a man travel in two directions at one time. A man might serve two masters by dividing his time between them, but he cannot be slave to both. If both demand a total allegiance, the man must choose; he can divide his time, but he cannot divide the allegiance of his soul. The greatest teacher and master who ever lived had something very definite to say about this question of choosing life's master. Jesus said: "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 6:24). If you have a master who will meet your every need, who will give you strength to take a stand, who will give you faith when the chips are down, who will be a source of comfort when your friends desert you and the world seemingly turns against you, who will lead you through 'the valley' at life's end, then cling to that master, for you have a possession that will guide and direct you over every hurdle in life and bring a happiness and contentment of which you never dreamed. For the Christian there is only one Master who meets the above criterion— Jesus Christ. He alone can heal a sick soul, give meaning to a purposeless life, and grant a faith to overcome every obstacle. But Christ demands one thing from the person who takes Him as his Master, and that is allegiance, complete unreserved surrender. Again I ask you, "Who is your master?" Is he God or mammon? At what shrine do you bow from day to day? Is your master worthy of your allegiance? Only you can answer these questions. It is the prayer and hope of the Executive Committee of Religious Emphasis Week that during March four through seven you will find your master.

PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 22, 1957 LVC 73; D-son 66 Lebanon Valley College won its sev- enth game of the year as they downed Dickinson College of Carlisle on the floorboards of the Lynch Memorial Gym February 9 by a score of 73-66. The game was marred by poor ball- handling, but the Valley managed to maintain their supremacy throughout most of the tilt and came off the floor with the win. For the Red Devils Ken Weaver was high man as he threw in nine field goals and nine fouls for a 27 point total. Dick Shover and Bob Nelson led the Valley forces with 18 and 17 points re- spectively while Don Grider helped out with his set shot for 14 points. With Bob Nelson hitting for 12 points the Dutchmen held a slim 30-27 lead at the half, but Shover's 14 counters in the second half proved too much for Dickin- son and LVC came out on the long end of a 73-66 score. Moravian 68; LVC 60 Moravian College led all the way in taking their second win of the season from the Flying Dutchmen by a 68-60 fcore at Bethlehem February 12. The Greyhounds built up an 8-0 lead refore Dick Shover hit on a jump shot for the first Valley score. Completely outrebounded, the Dutchmen faded far behind, but with two minutes remaining in the half, two Shover jump shots and a three-point play by Bob Nelson brought the halftime score to 40-28. Moravian kept their ten point advan- tage throughout most of the second half, but another scoring spree by Shover and Nelson closed the score to 64-60 with less than two minutes remaining, only to have the Greyhounds convert four fouls and freeze the ball until the final whistle. Flying Dutchmen Win Students Receive Opportunity Xtf£Lj T ° Enro " In Coachi "g Class A coaching class, something unique | in Lebanon Valley history, got underway I Monday, February 11, with Ellis R. Mc- Cracken, Director of Athletics, wrestling coach, and football coach, serving as instructor. Nine Valley students and two outside students make up the class which will meet every Monday evening at 7 o'clock in the Physical Education Room of the Lynch Memorial Gym. The last chance for anyone interested in enrolling is February 25. No credit or grades will be given and there is no fee, but a certificate will be awarded upon satisafctory completion of the course. McCracken reports that the course will attempt to cover all phases of the duties of a high school coach including sched- uling, equipment, staff, training, ar.d principles and practices of coaching. If time allows, McCracken plans to go into the details of one or more partic- ular sports. On two occasions throughout the semester guests will conduct the class. LVC Winds Up Season With Three Home Games The Flying Dutchmen face three of the toughest teams on their schedule in their final three games, all at heme. Franklin and Marshall, playing win- ning ball against some of the finest teams in the area, already own a very convinc- ing 82-64 win over the Valley on the winners' court. Coach Woody Sponaugle will be depending on senior Jack Ziegler and sophomore Bobby Souders when they invade the Lynch Memorial Gym Satur- day night. The following Monday an outstanding Muhlenberg outfit will visit the Valley. The Mules have gone big-time in recent years and are rated high in the Eastern ratings. Fairleigh Dickinson will wind up the Lebanon Valley season next Saturday n-'ght. Coach Rinso Marquette will be dressing three seniors for their final games. Cap- tain Dick Shover, Bob Nelson, and Don Rcinhard have been mainstays on the Valley squad for the past several seasons and invaluable to this year's team. LVC 75; Susquehanna 65 Lebanon Valley won their eighth game of the season when they took a 75-65 ver- dict over Susquehanna at Selinsgrove February 18. Dick Shover hit a season high of 30 points as he turned in another remarkable performance, bringing his season average to just below the 20 mark. With the Crusaders leading most of the first half the Valley fought back to close the score to 32-29. The Dutchmen, however, quickly gain- ed the lead in the second half and pulled out to a 58-48 lead which was immedi- ately narrowed down to 60-57. The clutch play of Shover, Pete Mc- Evoy, and Bob Kerstetter then proved too much for the home forces and the Valley carried home the spoils. Co-eds Open Season With Two Court Wins LVC 40— MSTC 37 The Lebanon Valley girls' basketball team surprised the entire student body when they presented the college with an unexpected win after several seasons which were notoriously winless. Playing against Millersville, which has consistent- ly beaten the LVC teams, the local girls made good by the close score of 40-37. Scoring honors go to Ruth Howell, who scored 17 points for the Dutchwom- en. LVC 49— Moravian 35 Saturday morning saw the Lebanon Valley Basketball Babes romp over Mora- vian College by a score of 49-35. Taking a lead in the first quarter which the op- ponents never touched, the LVC girls played an outstanding game, despite the lact that Beverly Sprenkle, Vonnie Evans, and Shirley Angle were unable to play be- cause of illness and injury. Sally Lynch, Ruth Howell, and Donna Hill led the scoring with 20, 11, and 12 points respectively. Albright 79; LVC 64 Albright College of Reading came from behind to down the Flying Dutch- men in a torrid 79-64 rout last February 16. Lebanon Valley pulled out to a 13-2 lead with Dick Shover and Bob Kerstetter getting 12 of them. With Shover hitting ;md Kerstetter rebounding in addition to earning 15 points for the half, the Dutch- Dutchmen Grapplers First Year Nears End Nearing the end of its first intercollegi- ate season, Lebanon Valley College's wrestling team, under the tutelage of Fl- lis R. McCracken, is prepping for its two final practice sessions with E-town and Albright. McCracken and several members of the team are planning to attend as specta- tors the Middle-Atlantics Wrestling Championships to be held March 1 and 2 on the mats at Gettysburg College. In a recent practice meet wth Eliza- bethtown College the Dutchmen grap- plers held their own despite the lack of experience. A large crowd displayed the interest and enthusiasm with which this sport is being received. Nine boys, who have been practicing regularly four days a week, form the nu- cleus of this years' squad. They are Nei! Aharrah, Bruce Rismiller, Paul DiPan- grazio, Dave Mead, Anthony Devitz, John Avoletta, Bob Sensenig, Dick Hollinger, and Ken Longenecker. Coach McCracken is pleased with tht progress of all members and is looking forward to next season. men maintained a ten point lead through most of the first half. With nine minutes remaining the Lions caught up with the Valley and from there on completely dominated the game. Dick Shover was again high man for the Dutchmen as he poured in 25 points, 14 of them coming in a phenomenal pei- sonal scoring feat during the first half. Bob Kerstetter, playing the best ball of his career, was second with 23. What - Me Worry ! ! ! ! How much does it cost to measure the integrity of the student body of an insti- tution of higher learning? It cost one in- dividual fifty dollars, but really that's cheap. Now he need no longer labor under the delusion that college students are an honorable lot. We at Lebanon Valley have effectively eliminated all such illusions. We were given a trust and we have grossly abused it. When the administration announced its plans for the student loan board (and we have made a mockery of this term) it was considered noteworthy enough to be given feature space in the Philadelphia Inquir- er and in several local newspapers and to be pointed to with pride in the alumni Bulletin. It is indeed fortunate that its failure will :iot be as widely publicized. The requirements for the operation of the loan board were few and simple. A student need only have recorded the amount borrowed and the date of the loan on a sign-out sheet placed on the wall with the loan board. He was not required to sign his name. A study of this sheet is indeed interesting. The original twenty-five dollars placed on the board September 21, 1956, had been completely exhausted in less than a month. After waiting two weeks in the vain hope that some of the money would be returned to circulation the adminis- tration again drew upon the fund which had been trustingly provided by an alum- nus for this purpose. A second twenty-five dollars was placed on the board. All but five dollars of this amount had been "borrowed" within three weeks. Of the sum remaining, three dollars remained in circulation, two dol- lars was stolen. This indicates that at least one person who "used" the service had been honest. The individual who took the two dollars without noting it on the sign-out sheet had been honest with himself. He made no pretense of intending to return it. The loan board is apparently a failure! But this is a fact which we should not be willing to admit. For if the loan board plan, which is based upon our integrity, is a failure, then so are we as men and women. We may excel in academic achievement, social activity and athletic competition, but if we are found lacking in the area of personal fidelity we are indeed poor examples of the type of indi- viduals which this institution is produc- ing. But obviously this admission bothers us not at all, for we simply don't care. Therefore, lest we be jarred into the rude awakening which apparently awaits us upon graduation, I recommend that the loan board be removed. In that way we can forget that which is a reminder of the undercurrent of dishonesty and over- whelming tide of disinterest which has engulfed this campus. — McAffdle 33rd Year — No. 10 Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penna. Friday, March 8, 1957 Support Pogie's Projects Facts About Your College Lounge There have been a few widespread, false rumors circulating throughout the student body concerning the College Lounge. It is the purpose of this article to correct these rumors in order that ev- eryone can see a clear-cut picture of what your College Lounge Fund is trying to accomplish. First and foremost. The Carnegie Li- brary Building was recommended by an administrative committee in 1953 to be renovated into a College Lounge after the books were moved into the new library. At the beginning of the first semester of this school year, the administration as- sured the Lounge committee that increas- ed student interest in the Lounge would insure the Carnegie Building for this pur- pose. Since that time, the committee has been reassured by the administration sev- eral times as to the future of the Carne- gie Building as a College Lounge. As the amount in the Fund steadily increases, we, the students, can assure the adminis- tration that we are extremely interested in fulfilling their proposals for the Car- negie Building. Second. The money that has been con- tributed to the College Lounge Fund will be used for no other purpose than the College Lounge. The contributions that have been turned in thus far have amounted to the sum of $835.70. This sum represents one-third of the goal of $2500 that the committee has set in order to fully insure the administration that we are interested enough in the College (Cont. on p. 4, col. 3) PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, March 8, 1957 ZJke Skovenidtic Mull.., "Brave Men, Brave Men". .Earnyur Pyle They walk, yet softly, in the tradition of the great ones who have gone before them. They are the descendants, the in- heritors, and the idolizers of the long line of courageous men whose life motto reads Somerhingus Forus For Nothingus. They are a born breed. Their self-de- pendence and personal resourcefulness are so highly developed naturally that we poor toilers in the bell-shaped curve can never begin to approach them. It requires no education for education is not enough. It takes more. We can picture them at work. Jauntily bouncing by the ignorant less enlightened classes, they move warmed by an inner second-hand hot-plate which serves, for economical and conscience reasons, as a heart. They are moving like men of hot butter surrounded by a million cold- edged knives — unmoved by the danger. They have their plan. Compared with their elaborate schemes, training, prac- tice, and timing the Brink's job is child's play. Brink's was merely mechanical, just a game. Thwre there were safeguards, locks, risk; there was an invitation, a challenge. But there were no "daring" or "psychological" problems comparable to those encountered by these heroes. No one was ready for them. No one expected them. All the more reason cool- ness and nerves "like iron" were needed. There were no alarms, doubts, paths of following up. All the more need for sheer bravery and determinism. There could be none and there would be no punishment at all.... WHAT COURAGE that de- manded. And why not? After all, they must have thought, weren't things getting tougher every year? Weren't the demands growing more unreasonable every semes- ter? Was anyone else looking out for them? Was not this just one more way to get even? And, besides, what fools these idealists be. If not us then some- one else would. . . * * # # But they didn't give anyone else the chance. Opportnuism is also one of their virtues, as are integrity, industriousness, will power, honesty, courage, trustworthi- ness, and bravey.

Quote of the Week: The best way to kill time is to work it to death. — S. U. Campus Briefs Chester Rebok, Darryl Meyers, and John Metka spent last week-end in New York City as invited guests of Union Theological Seminary for the annual Confer- ence on the Ministry for College Men. Thirteen Lebanon Valley College students participated in the national William Lowell Putnam Mathematical examination Saturday. The Valleyites taking the test were: Warren Wenger, Norman Gray, Edward Anderson, Grant Heck, Glenn Thom- as, Dominic Garda, Carroll Ditzler, William Schadler, Joseph Verdone, James Wolfe, James Wright, Earl Edris, and John Ray. The cabinet of the Student Christian Association recently named Audrey Rice and Richard Cassel as Freshman class representatives to serve with the SCA staff during the remainder of this year. On Heart Sunday, February 24, fourteen students from the campus joined their efforts with local folk in making a house-to-house solicitation. Co-leaders from the student body were Anne Saunders and Donald Zechman. Stanley Molotsky and Darwin G. Glick attended the ninth annual conference on "Careers in Retailing" at New York University's School of Retailing Friday, March 1. The annual mid-term banquet of the Political Science Club was held at the Annville Legion February 22, at 7:30 p.m. The guest speaker for this occasion was Mr. Henry Leader. Mr. Leader serves as legislative secretary for his brother, Gover- nor George Leader. He spoke to the club on the accomplishments and the proposed legislation of the Democratic Administration. Pre-theological students are eligible to compete in the Rettew Essay Contest which carries with it an award of $25 to the winner. The contents of each essay are to be built around the subject of Public Worship. Complete instructions are available in the office of the College chaplain.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, March 8, 1957 PAGE THREE Conserv Notes Organ-Choral Lectureship The fourth annual Organ-Choral Lectureship will be held Saturday, March 16, in Engle Hall. The guest lecturer this year is Mr. Edward Johe, Minister of Music at the First Congregational Church, Columbus, Ohio. The morning session, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, is divided into two lectures, each an hour long. The first subject, "The Organ and Its Use in the Church," deals mainly with organ literature and the church year with emphasis on the Chorale and Hymn-Prelude. Specific problems to be considered include hymn playing, anthem accompaniment and conducting from the console. The second subject, "English Handbells," is devoted to a brief history of hand- bells, the formation of handbell choirs and their function in the program of the church, and the use of handbells in the worship service. Special problems to be considered in this area are teaching handbell ringing, rehearsal technics, and selecting and arranging bell music. The afternoon session, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., has as its theme "A Church Arts Curriculum for Children and Youth." This includes the introducing of the chuich arts to children and "Exploring the Hymnal" — a course for children, introducing them to the fascinating "make-up" of the hymnal. The second lecture of the afternoon, "The Choral Program," is concerned with the integrating of the choirs (multi-age levels) in the total music program. Consid- eration is to be given to problems of choir placement, rehearsal planning and tech- nics, recruiting singers and lay-helpers, and repertory and music teaching aids and materials. Girls' Band Concert The Lebanon Valley College Girls' Band, under the direction of James M. Thurmond, will present its annual concert Tuesday, March 19, at 8:15 p.m. in Engle Hall. The program will include Bach's "Komm, Susser Tod;" the Overture to "Iphi- genia in Aulis" by Gluck; Ballet Music from the Opera "Faust," Gounod; Proko- fieff's "Troika;" A Salute to Grofe, Grofe-Yoder; Three German Marches; High- lights from "State Fair," Rodgers; and "The Girl I Left Behind Me" (from the "Irish Suite") by Anderson. Tickets for the concert may be obtained from any member of the Girls' Band. This I Believe By the time this paper is published, all of us will have had the experience of witnessing the 12th annual Religious Emphasis Week. As in any situation, those who participated in the various activities throughout the week received the greatest benefit. The purpose of the inter-faith panel, the dorm discussions, and the skeptics hours was to engender thoughts leading to the frank appraisal of our beliefs. In today's society, even the most cherished beliefs are laid open to unscrupulous scru- tiny. Therefore, we must be prepared to defend our beliefs with logical arguments rather than revert to stubborn declaration which tends to antagonize and reveals a narrow concept of the full implication of our beliefs. In the topic, "Seek Your Mas- ter," we have assumed the universal assumption that man possesses an intuitive alle- giance toward some external force which he seeks to satisfy through a code of eth- ics, a set of ideals, or religious beliefs. In contrast to this rather idealistic concept, do we in reality consciously seek a guiding power whereby we may with some purpose formulate definite principles by which to live, or do we, in contrast, seek to conform to the accepted principles of society to meet our own specific needs? In other words, do we seek a master or do we seek to become a master? Many of us who seek at master, or guide for living, fail in the attempt because we seek to become master over the principles we endea- vor to follow. In the Christian faith, Christ is the Master. To question His divine authority or to seek to become master of His Truth is nothing less than blasphemy. We of this world are unable to view our own actions and achievements as God sees them. We are bound by our pride and self-exaltation to endeavor to seek the truth and meaning of life by our own insight and knowledge of human endeavor. We should not be so Presumptuous as to assume that we possess the power to evolve theories and hypoth- esize on the mind of God, seeking to know why certain things and events have their being. Those of us steeped in the pleasures and anxieties of this world cannot hope to know such things. For "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (Cor. 2:9). Thus, the truths of the mind of God can be comprehended only by complete allegiance to Christ on a Master-Servant basis with love for God. — Frank Kershner Speakers Announced For Dedication Day The Lebanon Valley College develop- ment administrators have recently named the guest speakers who will take part in the "Dedication Day" activities to be held May 18. Highlights of the day will be a convocation service; separate dedicatory services for the Gossard Memorial Li- brary, Science Hall, and Mary Capp Green Residence Hall; and tours of each building.

Basketball Statistics Compiled by Bill Kiick Lebanon Valley's 1956-57 basketball team, which compiled an 8-13 record, av- eraged 66.9 points per game ove> their 21 game season while their opponents have scored at a 70.1 clip. Dick Shover was far above anyone else in scoring as he hit at a 19.6 pace follow- ed by Bob Nelson with 14.1. Bob Kerstet- ter shows the best shooting percentage with 53.1 while Nelson had the best eye on the foul line with a 74.3 per cent con- verted.

Hampered by fouls late in the first half and throughout the entire second half the Dutchmen were unable to play their reg- ular game. Bob Nelson and Don Reinhard led the Valley in their bid for an upset with 22 and 14 points respectively. Trailing by as much as ten points the Dutchmen rallied with Nelson hitting and closed the gap to three points, but a deep- freeze by F&M ran the time out with the Diplomats leading 56-53. Mules Kick Valley After holding a two point lead at half time the Dutchmen finally bowed to the big Muhlenberg team. The height of the Mules proved too much as they con- trolled the boards through the second half and outscored the Valley by nine points to build up a large enough margin to win 77-70. Leading the blue and white clad Dutch- men was Dick Shover with 24 counters. Next were Barry Skaler and Nelson who both chipped in with 14. The Valley held an eight point lead at one time in the second haif, but with the Mules controlling the ball most of the final ten minutes they pulled the game out. F'D Nips LVC Lebanon Valley College closed out its 1956-57 basketball season by dropping a thrilling 74-73 decision to Fairleigh-Dick- inson March 2 in overtime. Captain Dick Shover was top man in the game with 29 points, closely followed by Bob Nelson with 26. The game started evenly with F-D holding a one to three point advantage throughout the first half and holding a 35-32 halftime edge. The Valley came out to grab a 38-35 edge before Fairleigh-Dickinson could score and midway through the last half had built up a 64-56 lead only to have F-D rally for a 68-66 lead. Nelson scored on a layup to send the game into overtime. F-D scored five straight points to grab a quick 73-68 lead, but a three-point play by Nelson put the Valley back in the game. A successful foul conversion by the visitors offset another Nelson bucket and gave Fairleigh-Dickinson the win.

Dutchgirls Post 5-1 Record The Lebanon Valley Girl's quintet ru- ined the Elizabethtown team's hope for an undefeated season February 19 by ek- ing out a 51-50 victory. It was a hard- fought, tension-filled game. Donna Hill totaled 24 points, while Kay Barrow rack- ed up 14 fields goals and 3 foul conver- sions for ths opponents. Miss Bowman's crew took an early lead, tallying 21 points to E-town's 2 in the first quarter. The final half was the one which told the story, however. Eli- zabethtown came within one point of the Valley tally, and from then on it was anyone's guess who would score the win- ning point. The LVC girls came through, however, sparked by the efforts of Ruth Howell, Donna Hill, Jeanne Winter, and Peggy Barbour. Lose to Shippensburg February 23 the Flying Dutchwomen met Shippensburg on the State Teachers' College boards. The first half, notice- ably low-scoring, found the Valley girls losing by a score of 17-21. When the final whistle blew, the Dutchgirls were on the short end of a 43-42 count. Scoring hon- ors go to Shippensburg's Judy Kriebel, who made eight field goals and five foul shots. Donna Hill was the high scorer for LVC with 22 points. Defeat Albright The girls' basketball team emerged vic- torious over Albright College February 26 on the home court. After the first quarter, it was evident that the female Valleyites would win. Albright failed to score until the final minute of the first period, and the half ended with a score of 21-5. Although Albright began to emerge from its first-half lethargy, the Valley girls came through to win by a score of 58-34. Top MSTC Lebanon Valley met Millersville March 2 and came out on top, scoring 55 points to the opponents' 41. The game was close until the final period, when the LVC girls spurted ahead. Sally Lynch, freshman fireball, dropped in 29 points for the Valleyites.

By raising $2500, the student body can also have more influ- ence in the formulation of the plans as to the activities that the Lounge will pro- vide. The broad plans for the Lounge are to include practically all of the stu- dent activities. Hence, the administration is making available to the student body a complete building for student activities. We students must recognize the need for a College Lounge. There is no place on campus at present where we can con- gregate. When our parents visit the cam- pus, there is no real, proper place where we can take them except to our rooms. In short, there is no unifying cen- tral spot on campus where we can ema- nate a true college spirit. The adminis- tration and the committee both recognize this absence in our college life. Now is the time, during the month of March, to show that we (the students of Lebanon Valley) are not only desirous of securing a College Lounge, but that we are also keenly interested in establishing a strong, unified spirit on the part of the whole student body. We have done well so far, but we must strive to do better. By participating in the Lounge projects and attending them, we can establish on the campus of Lebanon Valley, a College Lounge that will serve as a monument of true college spirit. 1 w 33rd Year — No. 1 1 Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penna.

Hungarian Situation Discussed At Pi Gamma By Mr. Theodore Gress In the future the people of the world will look to Hungary as the bulwark be- ginning the revolt against Communism. The freedom-fighters, discontented stu- dents who sparked the revolt, had been in Communist dominated schools. These students as well as others in the country believe that they are Hungarians first and Communists second. This information as well as other pertinent facts about Hun- garian refugees, were discussed by Mr. Theodore Gress, city editor of the Leba- non Daily News, when he spoke to the twenty-two members, guests, and faculty members, at the Pi Gamma Mu meeting Tuesday evening. Mr. Gress stated that one of the high- lights of his sixteen day stay in Vienna, Austria, where he represented this news- paper, was the meeting and interviewing of a former resident of Lebanon, Penn- sylvania, Mr. Emile Maass. Eight New Members Accepted Following the address by Mr, Gress eight new members were inducted into the society as full members. They are Anthony Devitz, Robert Dinerman, Bruce Eberly, Joan Heindel, James Mitchell, Stanley Steiner, Sandra Weit, and Ronald Weinel.

PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, March 22, 1957 Mrs. Laughlin Shows Improvement Since February 8, the day Mrs. Maud Laughlin, chairman of the department of history and political science, became ill and was confined to Good Samaritan Hospital in Lebanon, her condition was extremely critical. In the past week, how- ever, improvement in her condition war- rants a degree of optimism. Barring any unforseen setbacks, Mrs. Laughlin ap- pears to be heading for a satisfactory re- covery. Reports from hospital attendants, her private duty nurses, and visitors indicate that she is slowly but steadily regaining strength. Her present condition does not permit unlimited visitors, but cards and letters from Lebanon Valley College students have been read to Mrs. Laughlin and have been gratefully received by her. Until further notice, the only visitors will be faculty members and members of the administrative staff. Additional informa- tion concerning Mrs. Laughlin will be given from time to time in La Vie. Editor's note: The students are encour- aged to continue sending cards to Mrs. Laughlin. Collegiate Sickness (ACP) — Collegiate illnesses can be categorized according to the day of the week. "First," said the college's resident nurse, "comes Monday morning misery. A sign of the onslaugt of this disease is the sight of a collegian, suitcase in hand, waiting for a taxi on Friday afternoon. First real symptoms are visible Sunday evening when the student feebly signs in." "The cure? A complete day of recu- peration." Freshmen and sophomores at Clarke get "Lache-all-over-itis" Tuesdays and Thursdays. Symptoms: sore throats, stiff backs, knees, unprepared assignments. Cure: exemption from physical culture class. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are the healthiest days, according to Miss Fox, and "students who have been sick all week invariably recover Friday noon." PHI ALPHA EPSILON (Cont. from p. 1) Others named as members of the hon- oray scholarship society are: JoAnne Grove, Red Lion, and Carl Peraino, Ber- genfield, N. J., both chemistry majors; Gerald A. McCormick, a major in Greek from Johnstown, and Ruth Sheetz, Read- ing, an English, Spanish and psychology major. Dr. Faber said that membership in the society is limited to senior students who have attained at least a B-plus overall average in 3*/2 years at college. Mr. Alex J. Fehr Received M.A. Degree Mr. Alex J. Fehr, instructor in polit- ical science and history at Lebanon Val- ley College, received a Master of Arts degree in political science at Columbia University. Mr. Fehr fulfilled the re- quirements for his graduate degree during the past five summer sessions. The sub- ject of the thesis which he submitted in I addition to regular I course work con- I 1 cerned the legal as- 1 pects of the tidelands oil dispute in Con- gress. Mr. Fehr graduat- ed from Lebanon Valley College in 1950 with cum laude honors. He was a Mr. Alex J. Fehr history major under Mrs. Maud Laughlin for her first four years on campus. After his graduation from college he served as local news editor for WLBR for fourteen months. The college called him back as an instructor in the fall of 1951 and he has held that position since that time. Acquisition of the masters degree will probably promote Mr. Fehr to an assist- ant professorship in political science. Joan Conway To Present Recital Joan Conway, pianist, will present a concert Monday, March 25, at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall.

Nomination of officers for next year and plans for the spring picnic will be the important items of discussion at the business meeting. La Vie Collegienne, Friday, March 22, 1957 PAGE THREE Dutch Treat DOT LENTZ Some strange things have been occurring around this campus lately. The last time that I looked at Pogo, he had hopped to $935. The next day I noticed in the midst of our rambling campus — our long awaited college lounge. Building prices are going up all right, but just look what was included for that sum — picnic benches and a trash can. Not only that, when I looked a little farther I noticed that Keister Hall was having a general fire sale on used tires. Now they come in handy for all sorts of things. What I wouldn't know! I'm inclined to think that spring has arrived and along with it "the fever." In glancing through the newspapers from institutes of higher learning and later hours, I came to the conclusion that we are not alone in our madness. The following also have come over the ivy line. University of Illinois: One student's curiosity got the better of him at the University of Illinois. An employee of the student union, he became fascinated by a new-fangled dish-washer recently installed — a conveyor belt affair that sends dishes through 24 feet of soap- ing and rinsing. He figured, quite astutely, that if dishes could be washed in it, why not humans? Since the water was turned off he began a dry test run, climbing up and stretching out on one end of the conveyor belt. He rode along the belt through the various compartments and as he sailed out the other end, he was "greet- ed" by a supervisor who happened to be passing by. Result of his curiosity — he's no longer an employee of the student union. Macalester College: Several years ago an educator spoke in convocation on the subject of "Aca- demic Dry Rot." The educator left his manuscript to the college library and a library student assistant filed it under Fungi. Wonder if this had anything to do with Spring House-cleaning? or was it a case of "the daze" of spring fever? Franklin and Marshall College: From Lafayette we hear of a professor's car being towed away because he for- got to put a campus parking sticker on the window. Seems to be a close parallel with F&M where last Tuesday morning a Volkswagon could be seen sitting in front of Fackenthal Library. This may well be a solution to the campus parking problem; buy small foreign cars and take them to class and to the library with you. Quote of the Week: Promises make friends, but it takes performances to keep them. — S. U. This I Believe "Let your light so shine before men; that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 5:16) In this verse of scripture we find our real purpose for living — to glorify God, our Creator. We can glorify Him only as we let our lights shine before men in the kind of lives we live. But before our lights can truly shine forth for His glory they must be lit by coming into contact with the Light of; the World — Jesus, the cruci- fied and risen Savior of all who, realizing their need of a Savior, accept His priceless gift of love. Our lights, like the candle, can be kept burning only as we give of self to the Source of our light. The more fuel that is given to the flame the greater the flame will become. Likewise, the more we yield of ourselves to Christ, the brighter will our lives shine forth for Him. The brighter the light the farther will our lights reach, but we must remember that the light shines brightest at home. Thus as we live together here on LVC campus may each of our lights shine forth to glorify Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. — Barbara L. Bender Notes From the Chaplain's Desk The spring Religion and Life Lectureship April 2 will bring to our campus Di. David Noel Freedman, professor of Hebrew and Semitic Literature at Western The- ological Seminary, Pittsburgh. He will speak in the Chapel Service. The subject of his address will be: "The Silences of God." The annual banquet of Delta Tau Chi was held in the Evangelical United Brethren Church of Campbelltown Thursday. The Reverend Edgar D. Wert, assist- ant minister of Covenant EUB Church, Lancaster, was the speaker. Jerald Bachman and Robert Kauffman have been invited to be leaders of dis- cussion groups at the Student Christian Movement District Three Conference which will be held at Camp Swatara, March 29-31. Coeds Drop Final Game; End With 5-2 Record March 9 the Lebanon Valley girl's bas- ketball team dropped a 54-44 decision to Elizabethtown in the final game of the 1957 season. The Valley team's inaccu- racy at the foul line contrasted with Eli- zabethtown's precision cost them the game. E-town's high scorer was Kay Barren with 24 points and 80 per cent of her foul shots, closely trailed by Kathy Swigart with 22 points. The LVC players, being basically me- dium or tall girls, found it difficult to ad- just to the tiny but tricky opponents. Be- cause of their height deficiency, the E-towners alternately drew out the Val- ley defense to clear the space beneath the basket and utilized set shots from about fifteen to twenty feet out. Wisely, Miss Bowman in the third period switched from a zone defense to a man-to-man defense. The scoring became more near- ly even for a time, but the opponents never decreased the pressure. It was an interesting and exciting game, and cer- tainly it was a hard one to lose. Donna Hill and Sally Lynch tallied 19 and 16 points respectively. Others who have played consistently good games all season are Peggy Barbour, Ruth How- ell, Arlene Reynolds, Jeanne Winter, and Jo Young. TRACK TEAM (Cont. from p. 4, col. 1) Kalo, 5-5; Vets, 4-6; Philo, 3-7; Resident Students, 2-8. Frank McCulloch led the scorers with an 8.2 average per game. Bob Handley, Vets, 7.3; Erv Schuster, Philo, 7.3; Bill Shadier, Vets, 7.1. Bowling Fifty-three bowlers and twenty-one spectators gave the LVC Intramural Bowling League a flying start March 13 as the ten-team league swung into action. The Vets and SCA are once again on top with 4-0 records. From there it is a toss-up with the Day Students (A), Kalo (A), Day Students (B), Kalo (B), Philo, Knights, DTC, and Faculty fighting it out for the remaining positions. Vince Crudele and Darwin Glick share the top game score at 201 with Mr. Mc- Cracken holding down the third spot at 190. Director of Intramurals Ned A. Linta and the Intramural Council, Jim Mc- Ardle, Pete McEvoy, and Bob Dinerman, wish to thank the participants for their gentlemanly conduct and are veiy well pleased with the interest shown so far. With only the softball league remain- ing, there is a very close fight in the over- all intramural standings. SCA, with 14; the Vets, 13; and Kalo, 12; are leading the pack with Philo, 8; Knights, 7; and DTC, 6 also in conten- tion. The Championship will be decided by the final softball standings. PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Friday, March 22, 1957 Intramural Sports Night Successful All-Stars Down SCA; Trophies Awarded To Individuals and Teams Bowling Inaugurated; Proves Popular Softball, golf, and tennis schedules will be posted on the athletic bulletin board at the beginning of next week. There is still time to sign up for the golf and tennis tournaments. The highlight of the intramural year at Lebanon Valley College, Intramural Sports Night, was successfully carried through March 14 by the Men's Intra- mural Council and the Women's Ath- letic Association. Beginning in the afternoon and run- ning well into the evening, the mass play- offs resulted in six individual champions, two coed champs, and four team vic- tories. Glenn Thomas got things rolling with two straight victories over Don Grider to cop the handball playoffs. Shortly after Sam McLinn wrapped up badminton hon- ors with two victories over Charlie Wer- nert. Jack MacDonald scored the third clean sweep of the afternoon as he gained the squash title with two wins over John Morris. The Intramural All-Stars took a 36-29 decision over SCA, regular season champs, as Bob Handley and Frank Gio- vinazzo each scored ten for the Stars to lead the way. Frank McCuiloch and Ross Plasterer paced SCA with twelve and ten respectively. After Jeanne Winter defeated both Eleanor Black and Marilyn Hafer in four sets to take the girls' badminton title, the 2nd floor of North Hall downed the Sheridan Hall Annex in the Volleyball playoffs. With the Faculty taking two of three from the Vets for the Men's volleyball championship, Charlie Wernert and Jeanne Winter combined to win the coed badminton while Elaine Goodyear and Stanley Molotsky took the table tennis tourney. Sam McLinn won his second cham- pionship of the night with two table ten- nis wins over Stan Molotsky after drop- ping the first several months ago during the half-time of a basketball game. Susan Fox downed Beverly Frease and Mary Bucher for the girls' table tennis tourney crown. The Faculty then defeated the 2nd floor of North Hall in a one game play- off to wind up the night's activities. Basketball A final look at the basketball standings finds SCA on top with a perfect 10-0 record followed by the Knights, 6-4; (Cont. on p. 3, col. 3) Pictured above are the trophies which were presented to the individual, team and coed champions at the close of the first annual Intramural Sports Night.

Earl Light has resigned as head of the biology department, effective June 1, although he will continue teaching in the department. He will be succeeded by Dr. Francis H. Wilson. Dr. Light joined the LVC staff in 1929, and became chairman of the biol- ogy department in 1950. During these years he designed many of the display cabinets in the department, and has made extensive additions to the fossil, shell and seed collections. Since he took over as head of the department in 1950, coop- Dr. Light Resigns; Dr. Wilson Named Head of Bio. Dept. erative programs in forestry, nursing and medical technology were established; and Beta Beta Beta was formed on this cam- pus. Dr. Wilson did his undergraduate work at Cornell University. He received his Ph.D. from that institution in 1931. He came to Lebanon Valley in 1953 as a professor of biology. Dr. Wilson Dr. Light Mr. Keller Granted Sabbatical Leave Mr. Theodore D. Keller, assistant professor in Eng- lish, has been granted a sabbatical leave for the 1957-58 school year. Mr. Keller is the first individual to be granted such a leave from Lebanon Valley College. He will spend this time at Columbia University. Mr. Keller Alumnus Named to Math Staff Mr. Robert J. Wagner has been appointed assistant professor of mathematics to begin the 1957-58 school year. Mr. Wagner, a 1954 graduate of LVC, has done graduate work at Rutgers University. He received his Master's Degree from that institution in 1956. He has been an instructor of mathematics at Upsala College since that time. Mr. Wagner Valleyites Visited Phila. Art Museum A group of faculty and students from LVC campus visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia Saturday, March 30. Miss Carolyn Potts, execu- tive assistant of the office of education of the museum, served as guide on an offi- cial tour from ten till twelve in the morning. After lunch the group browsed through the Johnson collection which consists of paintings from the pre-Renaissance pe- riod to the present age. Examples of modern art as well as many other types were observed. Two new acquisitions by the museum, paintings by Homer and Titian, were on (Cont. on p. 3, col. 3) Library To Receive Tapestry Dr. Donald Fields has announced that Carnegie Library is the recipient of a gift of a tapestry from Miss Ethel Whit- more of Lancaster. The tapestry will be hung in the music section of LVC's new library. This tapestry is claimed to be the car- toon or full-size design model for the "Lady and the Unicorn" suite of tapes- tries which have been attributed by some authorities to Touraine from about the year 1490. The "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries are a suite of six hangings which are now in the Cluny Museum.

Wingate, '48, has estab- lished the Salome Wingate Sanders music award to be given, effective this year, to a senior student majoring in music educa- tion. Wingate, a medical illustrator at Wal- ter Reed Hospital, Washington, D.C., is honoring his grandmother, Salome San- ders, for many years a vocal music pro- fessor at the University of Wisconsin. The award, a silver piece, will be granted to a student on the basis of his excellence of character, high potential for future usefulness as a citizen and teacher, aptitude for a successful career in music education either as a teacher or as a performing musician, high academic standing, and evidence of loyalty to and interest in his alma mater. PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, April 5, 1957 WAA Activities Fifty-five girls, spirits undampened by the rain, were intiated into Women's Athletic Association Monday evening, April 1, in the Lynch Memorial Gymnas- ium. The initiation, which included stunts and exercises of all sorts and varieties, was in charge of the sophomore members of the organization. Following a luncheon of baked beans, hot dogs, potato chips, milk, and cup cakes, officers were elected for next year's WAA cabinet. President Jeanne Winter has an- nounced that the annual WAA banquet will be held in the college dining hall Thursday, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. Enter- tainment will be provided by the club ini- tiates, and the program will conclude with the announcement of the election results.

The other spring sports, which will begin after Easter vacation, include softball, tennis, and golf. Dutchwomen Defeated Legionnaires The Girl's Basketball Team had finish- ed their regular season with a 5-2 record. Last Friday evening, they played another game on the boards in Lynch Memorial to add another victory to their season. The victims of this victory were the Le- gionnaires of LVC. The Legionnaires opened with a spark- ling first quarter. However, after that they just didn't seem to be able to do very well. They were out-scored in ev- ery other quarter, and finally bcwed in defeat with the score 21-18.

They plan to do this again sometime before Dedica- tion Day, May 18. This project, undertaken by Kalo, would be a good one for all Valleyites to ini- tiate. Campus may not look too tremendous at the moment because of the construc- tion work that is being done; however, we can help this situation by at least keep- ing the campus clean. Congratulations, Kappa Lamba Sigma, for a job well done. Pogie Says Thanks This is a tribute to you, the student body of LVC. Moreover, this is a tribute to the magnificent spirit which you displayed during the last week of March. To each of you who unhesitatingly gave of your own time to close College Lounge Month in a climactic success, we of the committee humbly give our thanks. The popular notion that school spirit is absent from this college certainly can- not hold true any longer. There is a real college spirit here at LV, the work and support on the Lounge Fund proves it, but we must cultivate it and let it grow. We should do something instead of talking about it. If fifty per cent of the college acti- vities on campus last year had received fifty per cent of the cooperation that the College Lounge is receiving, this campus could no longer be called a suitcase col- lege. True, the activities themselves should be worked on more than they have been, but it all boils down to each one of us. We, you and I, can make it the interim between packing our suitcases. Remember, the College Lounge Fund is not over now that the movie and dance are over, for we have already made plans for a movie this month. We still have roughly $1200 to go. Let's not let each other down, but support the Lounge even more magnificently than we have. This isn't just a Lounge we're gaining, we are also gaining confidence in ourselves and the whole student body. This is the prime pre- requisite of a solid, united school spirit. Pogie cordially invites you to the next College Lounge project, a movie April 25. We also invite, and would appreciate, the faculty to attend more of these fuuc- tions - Thank you, POGIE Campus Briefs The public is invited to attend a recital Monday evening, April 8, at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall.

Both, yes, we have both here at LVC this week — Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Let me see, a column on music. The first thing I must do is put a record on to set the mood. "Concertino," Mozart's No. 40, or Bach. I'll start with Mozart. That's the longest and it won't blast me off my seat. Mmm — pretty, but too many violins, and they don't "sing" enough. Eh, that second movement is quite slow. After all, the music does say andante. Maybe I can turn up the speed a bit and play the last movement real fast so that I have time to play the other records before dinner. I'll play Bach next. I feel like hearing some soothing voices. This is quite in- teresting, following the music with the record. Wow, that organist must be Mr. Bach himself. Seems to me the entire thing is too pianissimo. Yes, I'm sure of it. One thing, though, it does vary in tempo. Quite rousing — quite! "Concertino" makes a fine finale. The most annoying thing about this record is that you just can't seem to hear the basses. I guess they're not lucky enough to have "Jingles" around. I don't know, maybe I'm rather critical, but that clarinet solo sounds a bit weak. I like to hear the clarinet "miny, miny," times louder. "Well, then," I guess I am just prejudiced in favor of the music we make here at LVC. A terrible catastrophe has happened. Now that I have set the mood, the records have finished playing. I'll just have to wait until my next column, if there is one. After this, I'm not too sure. The college students will simply have to excuse me. It's only that with all these extra rehearsals, I'm afraid music has gone to my head — not my brain — my head. But just look what you have to look forward to on Thurs- day, Friday and Saturday. See you in Engle Hall. Quote of the Week: "Music is the closest thing to heaven on earth." — Addison. This I Believe Glenn Miller is alive today! The evidence which is available today to those interested in having it is sufficient to substantiate such a statement about the famous bandleader reportedly killed over twelve years ago in an airplane crash during World War Two. Reports now come from those who were closest to him that they have been in definite contact and had association with Miller since the "fatal" crash. One report is from Tex Beneke who conversed with him several times in the weeks imme- diately following the crash; another from a group of ten or eleven men who report- edly have had lunch with him on several occasions since then. The reason for the secrecy in the whole affair? Glenn has been working on the development of an entirely new system of tonal harmony and has shut himself off from the world until completion of this quest, and until then he will remain known only to those who are eager enough, and who love his style enough, to seek him out. Does this all sound ridiculous? Certainly! Why? Because there is undeniable proof that Glenn Miller died in that crash, and could be alive only as he lives! in the music he has written. There is no one who could honestly make any of the previously mentioned claims in the light of present evidence, for like any other mortal man, Glenn Miller died. About 2000 years ago another man died. History tells us this. Men saw him die and men buried him. His name was Jesus Christ. But ridiculous claims similar to those I have just made and certainly not conducive to immediate acceptance were started about this man after his death. Today, nineteen hundred and twenty-eight years later, men are still making these claims. Men still claim to have contact and association wtih a living Christ. Men who have sought Him have found Him. But they are not men who have been satisfied to simply have a Christian heritage; not men who have a religion in which they were brought up from childhood just as a Hindu or a Buddhist child would be. If this is descriptive of our faith we must be careful to even apply the term "Christian" to it. A man's true encounter with Jesus Christ can be nothing short of a personal experience which has brought about a change in his life. The idea of a man not staying dead is not exactly in our thinking as a common occurrence, and no man can claim such a belief and go right on living exactly as he was before. He must back up his beliefs with his own experiences and grow in these experiences or be cast aside as a religious fanatic or crack-pot. Could we possibly go to the tomb this Easter morn, find it empty, and turn to look into the face of a living, loving, and forgiving Christ? I believe we can. But are we willing to weigh the evidence with an open mind and try it? — Jack Stearns SEA To Elect Officers The Future Teachers of America met in Philo Hall Tuesday night, March 12, for their regular monthly meeting. Order for the night called for nomination for next year's officers. Since the majority of members were not present, nomina- tions will be opened again at the April 9 meeting. All members are urged to attend so that you may have a choice in nomi- nations for your officers. A special plea is made for more candidates for Presi- dent, treasurer, and recording secretary, since there was only one nomination for each office and in a democratic election we wish at least two candidates. The election of officers for 1957-58 will be held the week following Easter vacation at a polling desk in the Administration Building. Times of the voting will be posted. SEA's April meeting will feature Miss Mildred Greybeck, student teacher, and her first grade reading class from the Annville elementary school. The ele- mentary education club will be guests of SEA and an interesting evening is being planned. We would like to see Philo Hall packed by 7:30, April 9. Remember that May 7 is our last meet- ing night for the year. Many important things will happen: our trip to Karsnitz for our sundaes, review of the year in film, and a very important business meet- ing in which the new officers will be an- nounced and this year's president present the SEA desk to the incoming president. See you all there. — Barbara Geltz President, SEA VALLEYITES VISITED (Cont. from p. 1) display. These two were discussed in the March 31 issue of the Philadelphia In- quirer.

Over 50 students and faculty participate each Wednesday night in this recent in- novation at the Valley. The league will continue to play until May 15 except for Easter vacation. The Vets have recorded the highest three-game total of 2141 while the Day Students "A" team has recorded the high- est single game score of 776. Darwin Glick of the Vets holds the highest individual three-game score of 538 with Frank Argenziano recording the high one-game total of 211 pins.

Four matches have already been lined up for the squad which is headed by the Intramural Council with Sam McGlinn as the student coach. Pairings for the Intramural Tennis tournament have also been posted on the phys ed bulletin board. The Tennis schedule consists of: Hershey Junior College April 25 Elizabethtown April 27 Hershey Junior College April 30 Dickinson May 7 All matches will be away. Frank Etchberger Is * New Baseball Coach Frank Etchberger, a high school indus- trial arts teacher at Annville, has recent- ly been named head baseball coach at the Valley. A 1950 graduate of Milton Hershey and a veteran of the armed services, Mr. Etchberger succeeds Dean Mar- quette as the baseball instructor and has been working with the team for the past week. A fine pitcher in his own right, playing both minor league and service ball, he brings to the LVC campus much avail- able experience which will undoubtedly brighten the outlook for the coming base- ball season. The Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen set out on their 1957 campaign this af- ternoon as they travel to Millersville to meet the purple and yellow Rams from MSTC. Tht outing will show what the Dutch- men have in store for the coming season. Since the squad isn't of large size, quite a number of men should see action. In the catching department there is Tom Reinhart who is very ably backed up by Tony Pellegrino. At the hot corner the only candidate is Joe Toy. Co-captain Glenn Thomas has the shortstop position sewed up, but when he is on the hill, Les Miller, who holds down the keystone sack, will move over to fill the spot left by Thomas. There is a possibility that Mike Heynio will then take over the sec- ond base chores. The other co-captain, Bill Schadler, holds down the initial bag and is followed by switch-hitting Doug Ross. In the outfield Larry Bennetch, Ross Plasterer, and Bob Snyder have the inside track, but could be supplemented by Bill DeLiberty, Mike Heynio, or "Deadeye" Wesolowski. On the hill for the Valley it will probably be either Glenn Thomas or Norm Hernberg, the Valley's only port sider, followed by a list of hurlers which includes Art Ford, Jim Graby, Joe Nassaur, John Ollinger, and Bill DeLiberty. Coach Frank Etchberger said Monday that he hopes for a good season, and that although he has seen the boys only twice, he believes the season, with a lit- tle work, can be a successful one. Howie Outstanding For Bainbridge Champs In All-Navy Tourney As many students already know, Leb- anon Valley's pride and joy, Howie Lan- da, took up in the US Navy just where he left off here at the Valley — with a 20 plus average. Lebanon Valley students will get their first glimpse of the 1957 LVC cinder- men when Dickinson comes here tomor- row afternoon at 2:00. The Valley then goes to F&M for a meet April 9 and fol- lowing the Easter vacation will travel to Juniata. The loss of several track veterans due to probation weakens coach Linta'j. squad even more than was first anticipated. Captain Aubrey Kerchner will prob- ably be high point man for the Valley in his sprint and hurdles specialty, with help from Dick Savidge, Ron Hovis, and John Morris. Ken Piatt, Ed Slezosky, John Salem, and Lew Sheaffer wil compete in the dis- tance events with Frank Argenziano, Wallie Rich, Dick Harper, Charlie Wer- nert, Ken Longenecker, Vince Crudele, Lowell Mark, and Dale Mover in the field. Playing for the Commodores of Bain- bridge Howie led them to an outstanding season and just recently to the champion- ship of the All Navy Tourney. In this tourney. Howie amassed 70 points in three games for a 23.3 average compared to the second high average of 15 points. Because of a strict interpretation of the AAU rules, however, Howie was declared ineligible to compete on the All-Navy squad which played in the AAU cham- pionships at Denver recently, but there is little doubt that he would have been a unanimous choice. Adjectives have been hurled at Howie in the same unceasing flow that was cus- tomary while at the Valley. Quoting the Bainbridge MAINSHEET, "There is lit- tle doubt in anyone's mind but that this jet-propelled Commodore was the All- Navy's most outstanding player."

MISS GILLESPIE SHOWS IMPROVEMENT The condition of Dr. Mary E. Gil- lespie, recent director of the Conserva- tory of Music and professor of music education, has been ic ported by friends and visitors as greatly im- proved. Miss Gillespie was admitted to the Reading Hospital April 1 for sur- gery. The cards and letters which mem- bers of the faculty and student body have sent have been greatly appreci- ated. The Resident Women's Student Gov- ernment Association held elections for the 1957-58 school term April 9.

SCA ELECTION RESULTS President — Jack Stearns Vice President for Men — Merritt Copenhaver Vice President for Women — Joan Heindel Secretary — Louise Gay Treasurer — Richard Cassel Clio-Philo to Present The Crucible by Miller Tonight, (Friday, April 26) at 8:20 p.m. in Engle Hall, the curtain will go up on Clio-Philo's presentation of Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible, directed by T. D. Keller. This unusual two-act drama (5 scenes) takes place in Salem, Mass., in 1692, the time of the Witch Trials. The plot cen- ters around Abigail Williams and her teen-age friends who rebel against the strict Puiitan regulations and are dis- covered dancing naked in the forest. To escape punishment the girls pretend they were conjured to dance by spirits. This starts a series of accusations in which the whole town becomes involved. The court sentences all those who will not confess to be hanged. The characters and their respective roles are as follows: Abigail Williams, Charlotte Pierson; John Proctor, Joe Frazier; Elizabeth Proctor, Phyllis Luck- ens; Deputy-Governor Danforth, Cal Wacker; Reverend Samuel Parris, Joel Zinn; Mary Warren, Renee Willauer; Ti- Cont. on p. 4, col. 3 PAGE TWO La Vie Collegienne, Friday, April 26, 1957 WAA Holds Banquet The Women's A t h 1 et i c Association held its annual banquet Thursday night, April 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the College dining hall. Ninety members attended, including 55 new members. This un- usually large number of new members is explained by the fact that more stu- dents are now participating in sports at LVC. Previously only 17 new members were admitted. Awards, based on a point system, were presented. Seventeen women received letters. Ruth Sheetz and Elaine Good- year were awarded pins; jackets were presented to Jeanne Winter, Joanne Young, Arlene Reynolds, and Dorothy Book — all seniors this year. Entertainment for the banquet was in charge of the new members under the direction of Brenda Funk. The sports in which the members par- ticipated included shuffleboard, archery, volleyball, table tennis, badminton, bas- ketball, hockey, and horseback riding. Softball, tennis, golf, and dancing are featured in the spring program. The success of the organization this year is due to a great extent to the fine spirit of cooperation between President Jeanne Winter and her cabinet. The ac- tive participation of all the members, however, made this success possible. The new officers for next year have been elected. They are the following: president — Barbara Johnson; vice president — Ruth Howell; secretary — Veronica Evans; treasurer — Marion Brooks; representative to Student-Fac- ulty — Sandra Weit; La Vie reporter — Carole Ott. New sports leaders have also been elected: archery — Doris White; bad- minton — Eleanor Black; basketball — Sally Lynch; bike riding — Eileen Stamm; dancing — Veronica Evans; golf — Flora Rhen; hiking — Ann Saunders; hockey — Shirley Angle; horseback riding — Barbara Woodley; table tennis — Susie Fox; shuffleboard — Barbara Klinger; stunts and tumbling — Judy Blank; softball — Audrey Rice; swimming — Ruth Reddinger; tennis — Rebecca Myers; volleyball — Louise Gay. PLANS ARE UNDERWAY FOR MAY DAY ACTIVITIES NEXT WEEK-END Next Saturday, May 4, the annual May Day Pageant will be held on cam- pus. The theme of the pageant this year will be on the subject of books. The program will open with the pro- cession and coronation of the May Queen and her court. Pat Lutz, Queen of the May, will be crowned by last year's queen, Kathy Dotts Hershey, and Mrs. Edith S. Walter, Lebanon. A narrated story about types of books, written by Carol Ott, will be presented by six different dancing groups. Cal Wacker will act as narrator. "A Night in the South" will be the theme of the Junior Prom which will highlight the days activities. It will be held in the Lynch Memorial Gymnas- ium from 9 to 12. Art Davis and his orchestra will provide the music for the evening. Student Loan Board Reactivated During the Spring vacation period, a thorough review of the operation of the Student Loan Board was made by the donor and the Dean of Men. Although the facts present a dismal picture to this date, the donor refused to acknowledge de- feat. He wanted the following general thoughts relayed to the student body. It was felt that the Loan Board should not be operated with the safeguards rec- ommended by the students. Instead, it should remain on a pure honor system. It is believed that this will now become the true trial period as to whether or not such a Loan Board can operate on our campus. To substantiate such belief in the personal honor and integrity of the individual students, a check for an ac- count which now permits the limit to be raised to $10.00 per loan was forward- ed to us. The Student Loan Board is in operation again. Periodic reports will be sent to the donor so that he can follow developments closely. We look forward to success in our second venture but only you, the student body, can insure that success. GRM LVC Alumnus Becomes Bishop When Dr. Paul E. V. Shannon was elected to the bishopric of The Evangeli- cal United Brethren Church, April 5, 1957, he became the sixth alumnus of LVC to be named to the highest office in the church in which he serves. Dr. Shannon, who is currently serving as Superintendent of the Pennsylvania Conference with residence in York, Pensylvania, has also been actively engaged in the development of Lebanon Valley College in relation as a trustee. During past years he has served on the Executive and Faculty Administrative committees of the Board of Trustees. Dr. Shannon will move to Pittsburgh where the episcopal residence of the East Central Area is located. He will have direct supervision over the following an- nual conferences: Erie, Florida, New York, Western Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. What's In a Name The students of this fine institution can look proudly at the new Lebanon Val- ley College going up around them. The acquisition of a science building, the construction of a library and a women's dorm, and the proposed construction of a cafeteria and a men's dorm are the results of a ten-year building program. But are these fine buildings going to be called THE women's dorm, THE li- brary, or THE men's dorm. Or will the students of LVC have enough respect for this college to call them by their proper names and, perhaps, even add a little more dignity to their future alma mater. As a way of review the names of three new buildings and the renaming of two others as officially approved by the Executive Committee of the college board of trustees are: MARY CAPP GREEN RESIDENCE HALL - new women's dorm GEORGE D. GOSSARD LIBRARY — new library SCIENCE HALL — new science building LAWRENCE KEISTER RESIDENCE HALL - previously North Hall A. S. KREIDER RESIDENCE HALL - previously Men's Dorm All of the people so-honored by the Executive Committee were people closelv connected with Lebanon Valley College. Starting now, let's add a little atmos- phere to LVC by using the proper names of the buildings. PRESS Established 1925 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE, ANNVILLE, PENNA.

At the pre-caucus convention of the southern district convention held at Chambersburg High School, March 29, Kenneth Piatt was nominated for presi- dent of the PSEA. Ken, a sophomore ele- mentary education major, hails from Coatesville, Penna. This year he was first vice president of the southern convention district and on campus was the right- hand man to the president of SEA. The state convention will be held May 3 and 4 at East Stroudsburg State Teachers College and it will be at this convention that Ken's fate will be decided. Charles Brightbill, Peggy Garber, and Dr. Mc- Klveen will be at his side during the bat- tle and will be the main standards of defense at the convention. If Ken returns triumphant, LVC campus next spring will be the scene for the PSEA conven- tion. On behalf of the Student Education Association, Ken's many friends and well-wishers on campus, I would like to say, "God luck, Ken. We're right behind you. Bring back the honors to Lebanon Valley College and a capable president of PSEA." —Barbara Geltz Recital April 29 William Workinger, pianist, will pre- sent a concert Monday, April 29, at 8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall. Bill, a pupil of William Fairlamb, has also done out- standing work as a clarinetist. He is a member of the band, the symphony, the clarinet ensemble, and the woodwind quintet. He was awarded the junior pn'ze in music and was voted one of the outstanding musicians of his class. Bill's program on Monday evening will include selections by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Hindemith, and Bar- tok. See THE CRUCIBLE tonight in Engle Hall REW In Review INTER-FAITH PANEL During Religious Emphasis Week many fine points were brought out in the dis- cussions, seminars, panels, and messages. In order to provide the student body with a record of these highlights this summary of the various events of Religious Emphasis Week has been placed in LA VIE. It is hoped that each student will review these highlights and recall to mind their significance to his or her reli- gious experience. Rabbi Jacob Hack Rev. Robert J. Maher Rev. Martin Trostle The Inter-Faith Panel was opened by Moderator Georgianne Funk who intro- duced each of the guest leaders and then opened the meeting for questions and discussion. "What about the idea of giving up something for Lent?" was the first question. Rev. Maher explained the customs of Ash Wednesday. He stated that by giving up pleasures during Lent we gain will power and are better able to observe the com- mandments of God and remain in a state of holy grace. Rev. Trostle stated that the Protestant conception of such practices during Lent is more that of a spiritual discipline. Rabbi Hack was questioned concerning his views on the Messiah. He said that the Orthodox Jewish view is that a Messiah will come as a person but has not yet appeared. He explained that there is another view in which the Messiah is repre- sented not so much as a person but as an era. The Messianic Era would be an era of peace based on law and justice. This was followed by the question: "How is the Jewish view on the Messianic Era justified?" Rabbi Hack explained that there is a precedent to go by .The episode in the Garden of Eden is the background. When this story is interpreted as a parable the serpent is a symbol of evil, and the tree is a symbol of growth represent- ing a movement toward such an era. A question was raised concerning the interpretation of John 20:21-23 (Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you." And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."). Rev. Trostle explained that absolution in the Protestant Church is not actually the minister forgiving, but rather the power of the Holy Spirit at work. Rev. Maher stated that in the Roman Catholic Church the inter- pretation of the above passage is literal. The priest has been delegated with auth- ority to absolve the sins. One of the final questions asked was one concerning the authority for beliefs or creed. Rev. Maher stated that in the Roman Catholic Church the authority is the inspired Word of God and tradition, tradition meaning the teachings of the Church. Rev. Trostle explained that the Protestant authority is the Word of God. He made reference to a statement of the theologian Emil Brunner in making the point that the Word of God is Jesus Christ, and that the Bible is the Word of God only as it reveals Jesus Christ. Other questions were asked on such topics as eschatology, creation, the Immac- ulate Conception, pre-destination, and original sin. A fine spirit was shown by the three men who sat down side by side and openly and tolerantly discussed their beliefs and faith. The Religious Emphasis Week Committee wishes to thank all of those who came to the panel with open minds and who helped to make the panel a success by joining in the discussion with courteousness and respect. SCA FELLOWSHIP "Seek Your Master": Rev. Martin Trostle "If you were given one million dollars, would your first thought of what to do with it be for yourself, something material, or for others? Whatever you think of is probably your focal point of interest. Everyone has something which is his focal point of interest, his main purpose in life. Who is your master?" These were the pertinent questions which Rev. Martin Trostle asked during the course of his talk at SCA Fellowship during Religious Emphasis Week. He went on to say that everyone must seek a master. We must be loyal to someone or something. He asked: "How are you going to seek your master? Be careful what you choose, because you'll probably get it. Choose your goals carefully now." He referred to Luke 6:40: "A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully taught will be like his teacher." He said that we must choose well for we will become like the master we choose. We must choose a master who will teach us the right things in life because a master, in addition to being a master, is also a teacher. Rev. Trostle continued by stating that there is a wide choice and there are many offers. We might choose wealth, but we must remember that people who have this aim quite often become warped in the process of attaining it. Seeking fame and the applause of others usually causes one to become selfish or self-centered. Some people make the seeking of possessions their goal only to have their personalities (cont. p. 4 col. 1) PAGE FOUR La Vie Collegienne, Friday, April 26,-1957 Dedication Day Program is Announced Dedication Day, long awaited as one of Lebanon Valley's most meaningful occasions, will take place as scheduled within two weeks on the campus Saturday, May 18. Complete with all the impressive cere- mony demanded by a celebration noting the completion of a $1,090,000 develop- ment campaign and the dedication of three new buildings, the program will start at 2 p.m. with a convocation in the College Church. Dr. I. Lynd Esch, president of Indiana Central College, will deliv- er the Convocation Address following a procession of faculty and visiting guests into the church. Dr. Fred- eric K. Miller will preside. Dr. I. Lynd Esch The Lebanon Valley glee club, direct- ed by Dr. James M. Thurmond, will pre- sent two selections, and the conferring of four honorary degrees will be an addi- tional feature of the opening ceremony. The audience will be requested to fol- low the faculty procession as it moves out of the church to the sites of the dedi- catory programs scheduled to follow the convocation. Brief services, including audience re- sponse, will occur at each of the college's three new buildings. Keys to each of the buildings will be formally presented by Dr. E. N. Funk- houser, president of the college Board of Trustees, to Dr. Miller, who in turn will give them to administrators of the new facilities. They are: Dr. Donald E. Fields, head librarian; Dr. V. Earl Light and Dr. Howard A. Neidig, chairmen of the biol- ogy and the chemistry departments re- spectively; and Dean of Women Con- stance P. Dent. Polly Risser and Ruth Sheetz, officers of the new residence hall, will participate at its dedication and invite guests to the open house periods to be held in each building following the three short ser- vices. Joanne Young, also an officer in Mary Green Hall, will lead the audience in the Alma Mater to close the dedicatory ser- vices. A coffee hour in the auxiliary gymnas- ium of Lynch Memorial Building will also be held after the service at the resi- dence hall. The victory dinner in Lynch Memorial Building will begin at 6:30 p m. and will be highlighted by the speech of Dr. Wal- ter E. Reemers, vice-president of Union Carbide and Car- bon Corporation, and the presenta- tion of nine cita- tions. Professor Thom- as A. Lanese will direct a small mu- sical group during the dinner, and two vocal ensem- Dr. Walter E. Reemersbles and a cornet soloist from the college music depart- ment will perform. The invocation will be offered by Dr. William A. Wilt, pastor of the College Church. REW Cont. from p. 3, col. 2 destroyed. Others seek personal enjoyment, but become shallow because their thoughts center only on self. "But there is one offer different from the others," he continued. "This is Christ's offer: 'Come, follow me.' " It is a way of denial in which we must "die, crucify self, deny self." This offer is backed by a promise: "But to all who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God." By giving choosing such a Master we overcome self. "I give up my life that I may find it." Rev. Trostle closed by listing the Master's terms: (1) "We cannot dictate the terms," but rather we must let the Master dictate to us; (2) "We cannot serve two masters," only one; (3) "We must choose slaves to become free," for it is only by binding ourselves to the Master that we find life and freedom; and (4) "We must seek first the Master," for all other things must become secondary. He concluded with these words: "He is seeking you." SKEPTICS' HOURS If some topic or question pertaining to any aspect of religion is bothering you, the Skeptics' Hour is the place to air it and have it thoroughly hashed over. The two sessions, on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 4:00 p.m., were quite well attended. Many subjects were raised and healthy discussions ensued. Tuesday's session, moderated by Don Burkhart, opened with a discussion of Pacifism and Jesus' stand on the subject. Dr. Bell pointed out that Jesus resorted to violence at times, but that his stand was one of non-violence and that he taught men to love one another. Original Sin? His feeling was that man begins life in purity and hope. The significance of the old Testament was discussed. In it we find moral law, a history of the Hebrew search for God, and the finding of one God. Other questions such as Christianity and Communism, Predestin- ation, and Freedom of the Will were debated.

The Knights of the Valley social soci- ety, already donor of $100 to the fund, is sponsoring the campus concert and will give the proceeds to fund directors. An admission price of 50c for students and 75c for others will be charged at the May 14 affair, scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. The fund illustrates student interest in the college's development efforts. They plan to give their goal of $2500 to col- lege officials, who will use it in part pay- ment for renovations of Carnegie Li- brary. SPEBSQSA, known officially as the Society for the Preservation and Encour- agement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America, is a national organization. The 40-member Lebanon chapter is made up of several area quartets and in- dividuals and directed by Donald Witters, music director at Cornwall High School.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, April 26, 1957 PAGE FlVfc On© Dutch Treat DOT LENTZ "If these profs around here pile on much more work, I'll have to hire a stooge to attend classes for me while I catch up." "The food, if that's what you call it, that's served around here wouldn't nour- ish a dog let alone me." "The week-ends around here are enough to make me pack a suitcase and take off for Jap-pip." "Every time I turn around they're raising the tuition. Who do they think I am, Rockefeller?" Complaints, complaints, complaints. Just for curiosity, I turned to Webster to see if there's a more polite way of expressing this common LVC ailment. How- ever, Mr. Webster wasn't much help. He lists the following synonyms with the accompanying illustrations. To grumble is to utter surly, ill-natured complaints half to oneself; to grumble about the service. To growl may express more anger than grumble: to growl ungracious- ly in reply to a question. To murmur is to complain in low or suppressed tones, and may in- dicate greater dissatisfaction than grumble: to murmur against a govern- ment. To whine is to complain or beg in a mean-spirited, objectionable way, using a nasal tone: to whine like a coward, like a spoiled child. Well, I guess he told us. I'm guilty on all counts. Are you? You ask why I write all this. Try this experiment. Listen carefully for one day to the people around you and in particular to yourself. Complaints, grumbles, growls, mur- murs, whines — all count. It's enough to force anyone to write a column like this. So what am I doing? Guilty again — complaining about complaining. You just can't win. Maybe you'd better just disregard the experiment and be happy. For after all, what would we do if we didn't have anything to complain about? Complaint Department: How about the two camels in the middle of the Sahara desert. One turned to the other and said, "I don't care what anyone says — I'm thirsty!" Muhlenberg The head of a local plumbing concern demanded a full report from one of his workers on a housewife's complaint that he'd used "foul and obscene language" on the job. The following is the plumber's explanation to the boss: "Me and Joe was working in the basement installing a new shower stall. Joe, sealing an overhead connection, accidentally spilled some hot lead down my neckS' "Oh, I'm so sorry," said Joe. "You really must be more careful, Joe," I said.

Notes From the Chaplain's Desk Richard Cassel, first year pre-theological student, has been notified of his ac- ceptance for Youth to Youth Mission work this summer in the Evangelical United Brethren Church. This will be Dick's second summer in service to the church in this manner. There still remain a few opportunities for young people from our campus who are willing to set apart themselves for team work in the Youth to Youth Mis- sions of the Evangelical United Brethren Church during the summer of 1957. Students who are interested should contact the chaplain at a very early date. The following officers have been elected by Delta Tau Chi to serve during 1957-58: Marvin Rice, president: Richard Cassel, vice-president; Audrey Rice, sec- retary; Donald Zechman, treasurer; Merritt Copenhaver, deputation chairman; David Schmuck, assistant deputation chairman; music deputation chairman, Dar- lene Steiner; assistant music deputation chairman, Barbara Bender; and chaplain, Robert Landis. _ Tuesday morning, May 7, Donald Burkhart, president of the campus-wide stu- dent Christian Association, will address his collegemates in the Chapel Hour at eleven o'clock. Donald will enter United Theological Seminary next fall in con- tinuing his preparation for the Christian ministry. REW Cont. from p. 4 Sandy Stover presided over the Thurs- day Skeptics' Hour in which a discussion of the possibility of a universal Chris- tian church took place. Rev. Bell point- ed out that the basic differences in in- terpretation between the Catholic and Protestant churches are too great to unite. However, the church would be strengthened if it were united, and this should be an ideal towards which to work. Can we base our faith on Christ Him- self or on the spirit of His life? Think about it; it's a big question. Have we the right to say that, being saved by Christ, we will go to Heaven and others, i.e. Hindus, won't? Dr. Bell commented that before saying whether or not these other religions may be true, we should study them. The question of taking the Bible completely, partly, or not at all literally was discussed at length. Salvation was a topic of interest — the meaning of being saved, what we are saved from, and what salvation gives us. It is evident from the foregoing sent- ences that we students are thinking and questing for answers to the basic prob- lems of life. Discussions such as these help to stimulate our thinking and give us new ideas. Let us remember the words of Christ: "Seek and ye shall find." CONVOCATIONS "What do you know?" This was the subject of Dr. Bell's first message in the convocation Tuesday, March 5. Dr. Bell pointed out the differences between his time as a student and now. The fundamental problems are still the same, however; and life is still a time of seeking. Then the problem of what we will find arises. Man must lift himself in order to come into relation with God. Life should not be a slave to bound- aries; we must break down these, "the curtains of the mind." Life is involved with intangibles which cannot be meas- ured. Our knowledge of God comes out of these intangibles and how they strike us. There seems to be an increased in- terest in religion in college today, but not an interest in commitment. We must decide what we want to commit ourselves to and let this guide our lives. The address on Wednesday was a progression from a question to a posi- tive statement — "I Know God." All mankind desires three things: certain- ties (in love and in God), living values, and God, all three of which dovetail. Everyone wants certainty; the only way to attain this certainty is by living values that will last and by sensitivity to the presence of God. His Kingdom must be here in our hearts. In Thursday's chapel address, "I Know the Christ," Rev. Bell emphasiz- ed that we can know God through Christ. He began by saying that our lives are out of tune; it is experiences like Religious Emphasis Week which Cont. on p. 6, col. 3 PAGE SIX La Vie Collegienne, Friday, April 26, 1957 Golf Tournament Heads List of Spring Intramural Activities Flying Dutchmen Nine Drops Tilts to F & M, E-town, and M-ville; Play Home Today F&M 7 — LVC 4 After having the first three games rain- ed out the Lebanon Valley College Dutchmen finally were able to travel to Lancaster to meet the Franklin and Mar- shall Diplomats. Art Ford started the game for the Dutchmen, but had to be lifted after he tired in the top of the seventh. Up to this time Ford had given up seven hits and two runs. Bill DeLiberty in the role of the fireman came into the game with a man on second. He then gave up two hits, a walk, and hit Smith, the Diplo- mats' center fielder, before retiring the side. When the smoke had cleared F and M had driven across six runs. In the following two frames the Dutch- men were unable to collect a hit and thus went down to defeat 7-4. Leading the Valley in hitting were Les Miller, John Ollinger, and Tom Reinhart, each collecting two safeties, one of Mil- ler's being a two-bagger. E-town 15 — LVC 9 In their first home appearance LVC's baseball team was shelled by the Blue Jays of Elizabethtown College. After being retired in order in the first inning, they got to Valley starter Glenn Thomas in the next two innings for eleven hits and ten runs. Bill DeLiberty in his second relief ap- pearance of the year retired the last two men and shut out E-town for the next three innings. The visitors, however, did manage to get to DeLiberty for three hits and five runs in the seventh, two of the runs being unearned. John Ollinger then Services of Philo Hand Printing Press Offered To Valley Philo has announced the purchase of a Kelsey Excelsior hand printing press. Af- ter receiving high prices from various printing houses for the printing of tickets and programs in connection with The Crucible, Philo-Clio's production directed by Theodore D. Keller, Philo decided to take matters into their own hands and print the necessary material themselves. The press will handle an 8 x 5 frame that will cover any size sheet with an un- limited variety of type in almost any color. Russ Etter, who has experience in the printing field, has been appointed oper- ator of the press and will be assisted by other Philo members. Any organization on campus that wish- es to have material printed may benefit by Philo's service. pitched hitless ball for the last two inn- ings. The Valley's scoring came in the first, third, and seventh innings. Larry Ben- retch accounted for five of the Dutch- men's runs with a grand slam in the third and a round tripper in the seventh with none aboard. Also helping the LVC at- tack were Glenn Thomas with a triple, double, and single, and Les Miller with two singles. MSTC 4 — LVC 1 After absorbing two losses in the first two games the Dutchmen traveled to MSTC only to drop a third decision by a 4- 1 score. The Valley was held scoreless until the seventh inning when little Joe Toy led off with a single and was moved around by a fielder's choice and an error; he then scored on a bad peg by the Ma- rauders' center fielder. The Valley was able to get men as far as second base in (he second inning and as far as third base in the fifth and eighth innings, but lacked the necessary punch to drive them across. Doug Ross started for the blue and white clad Dutchmen and gave up only four hits and two runs, one unearn- ed, in five and two-thirds innings. Norm Hernberg, the Valley's only port-sider, finished the game givng up only one hit and two runs, both of these being unearn- ed also. Joe Toy had two hits for the Valley and scored the only run. Friday the Dutchmen meet Moravian at home, game time 3:30 p.m. Saturday the Valley plays host to Drexel, game time 2:00 p.m. Let's support our team. Kershner Takes Six First Places But LVC Drops First Two Meets Lebanon Valley's track team, ex- tremely outnumbered and outscored, dropped meets to Dickinson and Frank- lin and Marshall Colleges respectively. Aubrey Kershner, LVC captain and over half the team, won the 100 and 220-yard dashes in both meets and the 120 and 220 hurdles in the contest with Dickinson for the only six first places recorded by the Dutchmen. Also adding to the Valley total were Frank Argenziano, Wallie Rich, Dick Harper, Charlie Wernert, Ken Longen- ecker, and Vince Crudele. See the movie "Rear Window" At the Astor Tuesday, April 30. The first two rounds of Lebanon Val- ley's initial golf tournament must be completed by May 8. An arrangement has been made with Colebrook Golf Course for a special rate of 50 cents. Cards must be obtained from Mr. Ned Linta in order to take advantage of this low rate. Groups of three or four may play their rounds at any time. A handicap will be determined by the first two rounds, and the third round with the handicap in effect will determine the champion. Thirty-two students have sign- ed up for this activity sponsored by the Men's Intramural Council. Tennis Tournament Another activity sponsored by M.I.C. is the tennis tournament, the first round of which must be completed by April 27 and the second round by May 4. A new tennis team has been formed from those interested in the sport. A 4- game schedule has been set up with the first match to be played Apiil 25. Those on this tennis team are Sam McLinn, Phil Niosi, Dick Morrison, Bob Musser, Howard Good, Lee Thomas, and Bob Sensenig. Softball The Intramural Softball League is ea- gerly awaiting the advent of daylight sav- ing time. Because of inclement weather and early darkness only a few games have been played. Full confidence for this proj- ect has been placed in the hands of James McArdle, senior member of the Intra- mural Council. Bowling Results of the Bowling Leage so far show Frank Argenziano's (Philo) single game high of 211 still tops with the 538 of Darwin Glick for a 3-game total. A look at the standings finds the vets still leading the league with 17 wins and only three defeats. The standings are: Vets 17-3 S.C.A 15-5 Day Students "A" 13-7 Philo 12-8 Day Students "B" 11-9 Delta Tau Chi 9-11 Kalo "A" 7-13 Faculty 6-14 Knights 5-15 Kalo "B" 5-15 REW Cont. from p. 5, col. 3 help us to examine our lives and get them on pitch again. How can we get them, our lives, on pitch? Through a realization of God, through His Son. And how can we realize Him? In three ways: 1) Through revelation — either by a blinding flash or by a gradual process; 2) Through inherited faith — our parents' influence and example; 3) Through experience — once knowing Christ, we find that we can't get along without Him in our lives. Without Him, there is nothing. 33rd Year — No. 14 Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penna. Friday, May 3, 1957 Pat Lutz Potly Risser Georgianna Funk Pageant Highlights May Day Festivities Pat Lutz to Reign as Queen Spring will arrive officially at Lebanon Valley with the annual May Day fes- tivities this Saturday, May 4. The title of this year's pageant is "Food for Thought," and the theme of books was inspired by the building of the new George D. Gossard Library, to be dedicated May 18, 1957. The program will open with the court procession and coronation of the 1957 May Queen, Patricia Lutz. The queen's footstool, orb, scepter, and crown will be presented by representatives of the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes, respectively. She will then be crowned, according to tradition, by the 1956 May Queen, Mrs. Kathryn Dotts Hershey. Assisting will be Mrs. Daniel Walter, 1921 May Queen. Polly Risser Will Be Maid of Honor The maid of honor will be Polly Risser. Other members of the court are Geor- gianna Funk, M. Elaine Goodyear, Doris Kane, Nancylee Kettle, Mary Risser, and Jeanne Winter. Pages will be Andrew Stachow, David Stachow, and Robbie Marquette. The amusing story of the 1957 pageant, written by Carole Ott, concerns a stu- dent named Chuck who gets his hamburgers and research papers mixed up. The result of this unusual mixture is a fascinating dream of books and libraries which provides the background for the various dances of the pageant. The opening dance will be a waltz, representing the plantation life of the Old South as portrayed in Margaret Mitchell's famous novel, Gone with the Wind. The music will be waltzes from "Die Fledermaus" by Johann Strauss. Directors and choreographers are Rosalyn Rodgers, Rosalind Horn, and Shirley Jacobs. The second number, done on the theme of Shakespeare's Macbeth, will be a witch scene with the dancers dressed in long black gowns and black hats and dancing to "Danse Macabre" by Saint-Saens. Directors and choreogra- phers are Suzanne Fox and Janice Noll. The witches will be followed by the Mexican Hat Dance and an old-fash- ioned square dance, both representing the book Language in Action by Samuel Hayakawa. The music will be "The Hoe Down," arranged by Paul Yoder and "The Mexican Hat Dance" by F. A. Partichela. Directors and choreographers for the Mexican Hat Dance are Bar- bara Klinger and Phyllis Luckens and for the square dance, Joanne Grubb, Phyllis Luckens, and Robert Kerstetter. Next comes a ballet number inspired by the book Moulin Rouge, using the music from the motion picture of the same name. Solos will be done by Marcia Shirley, Marie Meyer, and Marsha Chaitt.

Last In a Series of Four Articles In my previous articles I blasted with poisoned-ink broadsides the student body, the faculty, and the administration. Now I feel the need for praising. The portions of our college deserving praise at this time are the extra-curricular participants. The cast and the backstage personnel who were responsible for the excellent performance of Arthur Miller's meaning- ful play, The Crucible, deserve great praise. It was a thrilling experience to see young actors do an exceptional job with a difficult play. It is a trite excuse to forgo praise for a few individuals by saying to single out any one actor is to slight some others. Yet with this play it is the truth. It was very well cast, credit to director Theo dore Keller, and the cast, in every depart ment, did very well. Elizabeth Speicher will no doubt move into a role in The Four Poster after her sleeping-sickness performance as Betty Parris. Joel Zinn made Reverend Parris a dis likable fellow; Frances Weitz as Tituba 2nd Charlotte Pierson as Abigail Will- iams were excellent. The perfection of the smile on Char- lotte's face in her moment of triumph in the courtroom was worth the terrifying screaming that went before it. Leesa Lohman and Mary Jane Potts after that courtroom scene with Charlotte should be able to get work with a group putting on Macbeth. Charlotte Long and Ronald Deitz were a fine couple of Putnams. James Carpenter was a sincere Rever- end Hale but the audience missed Jim at the curtain call. Where were you, James? Larry Gilmore and Cal Wacker as the judges reminded one of McCarthy and Shine with their tete-a-tetes. Phyllis Luckens came into her own in the final scenes as John Proctor's dis- traught wife. Then there was Giles Corey John 01- linger. A perfect casting. "More weight" could have been his only line and he would still have brought the house down along with the stones. Renee Willauer deserves much credit for a moving portrayal of Mary Warren. Ability such as hers made realistic the difficult scenes which could have ruined the play if they were not handled so well. As for Joe Frazier. . .excellent. Con- vincing, natural, and poised beyond ex- pectation for a freshman. Joseph certain- ly deserved his curtain call. The entire cast pulled no punches in an effort to give the audience and the play their fullest effort. I am no critic and do not want to be one. I wish only to let the cast and crew know that their long practice grind was appreciated. I was proud to applaud such a wonderful performance.

The rousing strains of "Entry of the Gladiators" will accompany the antics of the stunts and tumbling group and clowns Meritt Copenhaver and Ken- neth Longenecker, all representing the spirit of children's literature as seen in books such as Bambi by Felix Salten. The Egyptian by Mike Waltari pro- vides a background for a pagan dance in the next number. The music will be "Hymn to the Sun" by Nikolai Rimsky- Korsakov. Choreographers and directors are Judith Blank, Louise Lawson, and Anne Saunders. The climax of the dancing will be the traditional May Pole dance, when many of the junior girls will promenade around the colorful May Pole with their escorts to the strains of "Narcissus" by Ethelbert Nevin. Directors are Marie Sponsler and Georgianne Funk. Director of the 1957 May Day pag eant is Miss Betty Jane Bowman, direc- tor of women's physical education.

An unusual number of members were present at this meeting, another one of the club's periodic yearly gatherings. Head Scop Richard Shover announced the new members as George Cunning- ham, a junior, and two freshmen, Carole Ott and Joseph Frazier. The three stu- dents will be initiated into the organiza- tion at this month's meeting, date to be announced. Poet Art Ford and short story writer Mike Cupino were elected to the two of- fices. Art will succeed Dick Shover as Head Scop while Cupina will continue as keeper-of-the-word-horde. The evening of rare literary treat as promised by Head Scop Shover was not forthcoming as publicized. A poet of note, Carl Schlapairo, got lost and a local song writer, John Haines, was un- avoidably detained. In addition to the reading of the man- uscripts of the new aspirants the mem- bers read works of their own and ex- changed views concerning style and tech- nique. Arthur Ford and James McArdle especially contributed new works and added much to the success of the meet- ing. Refreshments were served.

Flying Dutchmen Topple Moravian and Drexel For First Two Wins of Year After dropping three straight, the Leb anon Valley Flying Dutchmen, behind the pitching of Art 1 Ford and Norm Hern- berg, came through' -to down Moravian by a 15-9. count in seven innings. The game was cut short because of the col- lege rule' that no inning shall start after 5M5 p.m. 3 " Ford started for Valley and gave up 1 ! hits and eight runs in seven and one- third innings. Hernberg in a two-thirds of an inning stint gave up two hits and one run before retiring the side. Ford was credited with the win over the Grey- hounds bringing his record to 1-0. Leading the Valley to revenge for the loss in basketball were Glenn Thomas and Larry Bennetch with three hits apiece. Thomas collected a single, dou- ble, and home, run in five trips to the plate and Bennetch collected three singles in five trips. Also adding to LV's power attack were Les Miller, a triple; Bob Snyder, a home run, his first time at bat this season; Bill Shadier, a double; and pitcher Ford with a double. Dutchmen Slay Dragons Through the efforts of Norm Hernberg Lebanon Valley was able to slay the Drexel Dragons. After a shaky start by Vince Martinicchio, who had trouble finding the plate, Hernberg came in with two men on in the top of the third and re- tired the first three men to face him. Af- ter that no Drexel man reached first until the seventh inning when the Dragon shortstop led off with a single. In the eighth with two down Drexel managed to get another hit, but that runner was also left on base. In the ninth, Norm put Drexel down in order. All together the Valley pitcher had given up only two hits in seven complete innings. The final score was Lebanon Valley 3 and Drexel 1. Leading LVC offensively were Les Miller with three hits and Bob Snyder with two. Les gathered a triple and two singles, while Snyder had two singles. Ursinus Trips Valley After a very sucessful weeknd at home, LVC traveled to Ursinus only to come cut on the short end of an 8-5 score. The walk killed the Dutchmen's chances as five free passes were changed d-'rectly into runs by the Ursinus team. Doug Ross started the game for Valley but had to be lifted for Glenn Thomas after two and one-third innings when he found trouble finding the strike zone. Some bright spots for the Dutchmen occurred with second baseman Joe Stauf- fev's three hits in four trips to the plate — a home run and two singles, and Glenn Thomas' three bagger. The Valley lacked the scoring punch as they were able to score no more than one run in any inn- ing and left eight men on base. Track Team Loses To Juniata and Albright In Triangular Meet Captain Aubrey Kershner captured Lebanon Valley's only first place in the 220 low hurdles as the Flying Dutchmen took third place in a triangular track meet with Albright and Juniata. Albright won top honors with a total cf 82 1/3 points followed by Juniata with 52 1/3 points and Lebanon Valley with 19 1/3 points. Kershner also gathered points with sec- ond in the 100 yard dash and the 220 yard dash, and a third in the 120 high hurdles.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 3, 1957 Albright Lions Maul Lebanon Valley Nine In 23-6 Rout Here The Albright Lions did not hesitate long before completely wrecking the Leb- anon Valley pitching staff and team in general as they drubbed the Dutchmen 23-6. LVCs New Tennis Team Takes 8-1 Contest Lebanon Valley's newly formed tennis team, coached by Sam McLinn, won eight out of nine matches from Hershey Junior College to remain undefeated for the year. Single victories were scored by Howie Good, Bob Musser, Sam McLinn, Phil Niosi, Lee Thomas, and Bob Sensenig. Howie Good and Bob Musser teamed up to take a doubles match as did Sam McLinn and Phil Niosi. The team of Lee Thomas and Dick Morrison suffered the only defeat for the Dutchmen. Although five pitchers were hammered by the Red and White visitors, John 01- linger was credited with the loss. Art Ford started for the Valley but retired after four innings with the score tied 5-5. Ollinger then started a long list of relief pitchers including Bill DeLiberty, Doug Ross, and Jim Graby. The first few innings were close as Albright scored first but were quickly tied by the Valley on a Les Miller triple and a sacrifice fly by Tom Reinhart. The Dutchmen then went ahead in the second as Bob Snyder singled and scored on an error and wild throw. With Les Miller singling and Reinhart doubling LVC again went into the lead at 3-2. Glenn Thomas kept the rally going with a single and scored shortly after on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Snyder. After the Lions tied the score in the fourth inning, things took a turn for the worse and Albright countered eleven times in the sixth and six times in the seventh to turn the game into a complete rout.

Linda Heefner Science Hall Lounge Fund Grows The College Lounge Committee, a spe- cial committee of the Student-Faculty Council, has high hopes of raising the goal of $2500 this year. Already the fund has grown to $1377 due to the recent donation by the Women's Auxiliary of Lebanon Valley College, Tri-Beta, and Delta Tau Chi. The Women's Auxiliary has donated $100 to the fund. This in- terest on the part of such an organization composed of alumni and parents is signi- ficant in the fact that not only we stu- dents feel the need for a lounge, but that others also share this feeling. The Lounge Committee has, in this past week, circulated pledge donation slips to the dorm students who wish to contribute their breakage fees or por- tions of them to the Lounge Fund. In an early peek at those slips the students have already shown their magnanimous support of the Lounge Fund. In the light of this recent project on dorm breakage fees and the successful Lounge projects of this school year, the Lounge Committee wishes to extend to the student body and faculty of LVC a real and deep-felt appreciation. Without stint you have supported your cause. We hope this support will be present next year, as already three "really big" lounge productions are underway. Make no mis- take: there is real spirit at LVC. The Lounge Committee regrets the leaving of Dean Dent, our adviser, who gave much of her time to the work of the College Lounge Fund. Charles Lightner Chairman of the College Lounge Comm. Donna Hill Is Named Freshman Girl of Year Donna Hill has been announced Fresh- man Girl of the Year by the RWSGA at the annual banquet given by Dean Dent on Thursday night, May 16.

Donna is a pre-nursing student from Upper Darby. DEDICATION DAY— Cont. p. 1, col. 3 Howard Neidig, chairman of the biology and chemistry departments, respectively; Constance P.
